RE: 5R4G and 5U4G condenser output value

As other have noted, it's peak repetitive current that's the actual limit. Cathode can only support so much current, and can be damaged it it's exceeded. As with most tube specs, you can usually get away with exceeding one limit if the others are well under limits. At maximum rated voltage, maximum rated DC current, minimum transformer winding resistance, your input cap should not exceed 4 uF.
