as nelson said. the 3 leg diodes have 2 paralell diodes in the same chassis. but ofcourse.
you can use twice as many. to form dual bridges.

Most of the 3 legs dual diodes rectifier comes in two types of configurations, either it is common anode or common cathode, standard bridge can be form by two dual diodes, one of each type.

But I don't know if this types of configuration also applied to "special audiophile rectifiers" or not.

I'm thinking the other way around. Less feedback and more gain (+P3 regulation for 2nd harmonics character) to get leass damping and a little more pleasant distortions.
What are MAX recommended resistor values? Is it wise to use even more ohms than in F5Turbo?

There is no max. You can leave the resistors out if you want to.

OK on the topic of special diodes , when you parallel then does it change the forward resistance or does it only double the Pd???

dumb, E

decrease in fwd voltage drop is there too , but negligible

20 percent times twice the current isn't negligible (odd word is that).

for PSU it is , at least in my nondutchie book

if you're going to use them as Rs relaxant , then do your math

In general when I use a relaxant, doing math is out for a while.

(recall we also had a parlér about the necessity of such biggy duallies as an Rs laxative, and smaller alternatives)
