Default byw 100-200 in fast bridge rectifiers

Hello,

Has anyone used these rather cheap diodes (byw 100-200 or similar) in bridge rectifiers? How do these diodes perform?

I intend to use these in preamp PS, crossover PS and headphone PS.

cheers,

Yes,

I have used them for nearly four years.

They make quite a difference; subtle, but definitely audible.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi,

Thanks Hugh. Looks that their specs are reflected in their performance. I bought them because their specs looked good - certainly for their price. I also have stealth diodes which cost many times more but I doubt their performance will be that many times better. Thanks again,

cheers,
