Re: Anyone tried FREDS (fast recovery epitaxial diodes)
better than the freds are the uf4007's... they are actually even easier to filter out the hash from.  
 
i have done a little research into snubber circuits for use in power supplies. you can see some results of experiments here:

more important than the fancy diodes is a good snubber network which can really cut down on HF bullshit bouncing around under the chassis.  
 
i am quite convinced that adding snubbers does not detract from pleasurable sonic attributes in the least bit.
