RE: To snub or not to snub...that is the question.....

Yes, it's OK to snub, but maybe not necessary. HK produced a number of amplifiers using both single and series rectifiers in doublers. They used the 500V silicon diodes of that era, yet didn't find it necessary to include snubbers. I own the amplifier represented by the partial schematic below. It's roughly 50 years old and has never experienced a power supply failure.
