Can you use any diode as long as the amp and piv match?

I am trying to repair a sound system and needs new diodes, the diode I am looking for is apparently 276-1144 (3amps/400PIV) So I am assuming 276-1144 is just a model of diode? in this case I would only need to worry about the AMP and PIV? in theory I could purchase any diode so long as the AMP and PIV fits the... show more I am trying to repair a sound system and needs new diodes, the diode I am looking for is apparently 276-1144 (3amps/400PIV)

So I am assuming 276-1144 is just a model of diode? in this case I would only need to worry about the AMP and PIV? in theory I could purchase any diode so long as the AMP and PIV fits the criteria.

if anyone could help me in what diode I can use to replace with, that would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
