Hi.
Im new with electronics, sorry if my question is super simple or nonsense but anyways.
I have an all in one sound system and the ss34 diode better known as 1n5822 is damaged.
Where I live I can only found the ss56 60v/5A, so I wonder if I can replace the ss34 with the ss56, even though the ss34 is 40v/3A and the ss56 is 60V/5A.

Thanks

Usually not a good idea to go lower. Higher maybe, lower probably not. Do the math on the circuit and see if there is any leeway in the overhead. And Welcome to AAC! You might post a circuit diagram for comment so we know exactly what may work.

@SamR
TS is proposing to "go higher".
