Default BYW56 diodes as hi-end rectifier?

Hi all,

I've got a bunch of BYW56 Diodes (so called sinterglass avalanche types), rated 1000V and 2A, in SOD-57 case.
Did somebody make experiences with those, and could say if they are suitable as high quality diodes in High-End audio applications?

They are probably Philips built items. They seem to be cheap though...

Thanks,

- dan

Yes I use them in my high end DIY equipment.
It was about 10 years I tried some avalance diodes BYW95C and BYV27 I liked the sound of them,and use them where I can.They don´t have that high current capabilities to use as rectifiers for big triodes.
They are cuite cheap,so I think its worth to use them where I can.
