Question Gbpc2508w

I have salvaged a lot of these rectifier bridges. I am also using them in some projects with audio gear.

I want to ask the obsessed audiophiles if it's all bad or OK if I use 10nF ceramic capacitors in paralell with the diodes, even if the datasheet doesn't tell if it incorporate slow recovery diodes?

The more you read at this forum the more narrow is the choise of components you can use to build descent audiogear, it seemes.
I have also learned that It's not advisable to believe everything you read.
Cheers// Ove

Putting capacitors in parallel with the diodes might eliminate some of the switching noise,and other noise that tries to make it's way through.

It's common practice in RF equipment to put caps across the rectifiers to eliminate unwanted hum.
