RE: 5R4GY and filter cap values

I just posted a long response to you post above but after reading this one I deleted it.

Yes I was speaking in general terms, trying to make the point that the number given on the datasheet (any rectifier tube, any datasheet) is dependent on the circuit condition with which the rectified tube is being used and is not a max or "hard" number.

Making sure the peak repetitive current rating (for whatever rectifier tube we are using) is not exceeded is what guides us to the max uf value of the input cap based on the circuit conditions, case by case.

Thanks for being able to "read me".
