One other point is that discrete op amps are always potted except for home made units. I doubt John Hardy would consider using vertical mounting if the product were not to be potted.
What does fail are TO-220 package leads. Just can’t take the vibration.
Resistors mounted vertically to conserve board space.
Thermal gradients create significant thermoelectric circuit errors.
