rCRC is better than C.
Better in this case means more attenuation of the unwanted mains and it's harmonics and all the HF garbage that comes in with the mains.

If I use thick short cable that results in 2mill-ohms of flow and return total circuit resistance for one connection pair and instead I use a slightly longer twisted pair of thin guage and have maybe 15milli-ohms of circiut resistance than I have gained a free 13milli-ohms and I have gained again with low loop area.
Now repeat that before the rectifier, after the rectifier, before the amplifier. I could get an additional 30milli-ohms of "free" resistance to make up that r of the rCRC filtering.

Every time a little capacitance follows an r or R we have a filter. All those filters add up to massive attenuation of the HF arriving at the amplifier power rails.

BTW, I posted transformer test results showing secondary resistance of 90milli-ohms in the reservoir size Thread. an extra 30 is significant.
Roender's 300 is even more effective.

Thank you... can you post a link of the reservoir size thread ?

Why the use of double diodes in the bridge?

On the PCB design there is position for MUR120 diodes or MUR8x0 diodes. Use one or the other, depends on designed load current.

It's valid for all Salas shunt regulators?

Is valid for any shunt regulator, not only SALAS. Actually, is valid for any regulator who draw "constant" current, either series or shunt.

Thanks Salas, I use also RC but to down the voltage never measured to give 1V across the resistor.
