LM3886 Chip Amp Project
As a fan of discrete design and build, I was intrigued by all the talk about the TI LM3886 Gain Clone Amplifier (how good it sounded). This single package design delivers 50 watts into 8Ω (Vcc = ±35V), with minimal external components. So I ordered a PCB off eBay for $5.50 US (XY Power Amp), and started my build to see for myself what this little 11 pin package can do...
