You'll need a diode test functionality on your DVM

Germanium transistors tend to show a bit of leakage when testing from emitter to collector. So don't reject them on that account unless they show a dead short or the same (and high) leakage in both directions.

If you do run into actually bad parts, I have a bin of old doorknob devices. For audio outputs they usually are not all that critical so its possible I have something on hand that will work.
