Buffer car radio with 9V block battery

According to this this thread from 2013 in boot-forum (German), someone has posted a circuit layout that he says he's been using for 5 years successfully now:

I've wired up a prototype setting and: It works! :D Hooray!

Although: I've substituted the diodes with a diode-rectifier.
I didn't have the proper diodes at hand, and couldn't wait to try it out. Had an old rectifier laying around. Connecting it this way to achieve the same as the above circuit:
Pin-wiring for rectifier instead of 2 diodes.
