RE: the main/output coupling caps...

Is somewhat a contradiction in terms.
The output capacitor usually refers to a capacitor in the output stage of a preamp before the signal goes to the output jack.
Tube Amplifiers would not have a capacitor output but a output transformer, unless it is a OTL amp.
A coupling capacitor joins different gain stages in the amp and blocks the DC component allowing the signal (AC) to the next stage.
