Cool thanks. Now I have a whole stack of them fancy diodes and I won't be able to use them.

Which normal bridges would you guys suggest? I used plain old 35A Vishay bridges in the KSA50 and it's dead quiet.

Yes, the Vishay are great. Inexpensive, easy to use, durable, and sound great. What's not to like?

I used them in my KSA 50 monoblocks and Aleph 5 monoblocks. If one ever gets destroyed by the charging ripple of the 68 mF capacitor, I have a tray full of replacements ready to go into action.

They are good for line-level projects.

OK buzz, I will check the BOM. Maybe I also need to remove the fancy cap options in case somebody buys parts blindly from the BOM.

Don't remove the fancy parts options - just make a note and have a good yeoman's choice as well - Some people will gold plate everything from the start, some will want to get it running and adjusted, then swap out for the expensive parts (which in this case is likely the input cap)

I just saw a sale on gold plate fuses. The copy was "Your power line is only good as the weakest link".

Ja right. Next they will tell us amps sound better when constructed with gold plated caps. I remember way back that Jimmy Hughes claimed his amps sounded better when he removed the screws from the covers. He's the same guy that wanted to blow his ears clean before doing listening sessions, until some docter explained to him how stupid that was.

6L6, OK, I won't remove the caps, but I will highlight all the safe options.

Henry,

This is the input capacitor I used. It is available at both Mouser and Digikey.
