The 4739 is a dual op-amp but may not be pin compatable. It's in a 14-pin DIP with the supply pins on 4 and 10 as I recall. Also, it's a non-compensated device and so has pins across which a capacitor would be connected to set the maximum gain bandwidth (in order to reduce oscillations).
I have a Heathkit AA1214 stereo amp that uses the 4739 and over the years is has developed some "popcorn" noise. I attempted to replace it with a NE532(?) to no avail. I think the 4739's compensation caps where part of the RIAA playback curve circuitry as this was the phono cartridge preamp.
