Default replacing diodes in my tubed-cd player

Well the tube uses 6DJ8 family and it uses a bridged rectifier that's rated at 8A 400V. Is there any chance than a 6DJ8 circuit to consume such amperage?

I want to replace the bridged rectifier with 4A 1000V ultrafast diodes (fashioned into a bridged rectifier).

Thanks for the replies.

Jayel

ps. I'm not sure if this belongs to the proper section so I apolgize if advance.

For continuous curent, the 4A will do fine. The question I have is what follws them? If there's a big cap bank, the surge (peak) current rating may be an issue.

there are 5 220uF 250V caps which I assume is for this bridged rectifier in question. And there's a 10000uF 25V which I assume is for another supply that uses a positive voltage regulator possibly for the heaters.

Well, assuming the rectifiers in question aren't being used for the filaments (trace it out to be sure), 4A doesn't seem unreasonable.
