Can this mod be installed on an Eros v1 and Mainline as well?

I don't see issues doing this with any of our products.  I do also plan to test whether a UF4007 can throw a 20A breaker and survive, as this could also be a suitable part to use.

Are you feeding your Eros with a signal from a computer?  If not, then I would not install this in a phono preamp.

Yes, the 1N5408 would work well.
Hey there! Just picked up some of the above diodes, but the leads seem mighty thick - and double thick once twisted - wondering whether ill be able to attach to the ground etc effectively. So, my question: do the STTH2R06 diodes have skinnier leads?
