Default Which Chip AMP you like most?

I play diy amp for several years, tried to build different chip amp such as 3875, 3886, 1875, 1876, now I am using 1875, the sound is good enough even using some typical components.

I still want to play other chip AMP, so, would like to discuss which chip amp is good to be build again? is there anyone have some idea on it?

LM1875 is the most classical chip amp in the world , many people have a good memory with it.


Highly recommend LM1875.

Default LM4780 sounded very good before self destroyed


TDA2030 sounds good too.

LM3866 i have perceived as almost the same sonic you have into LM4780... it seems 2 LM3866 are sharing the same capsule into the LM4780.

I like the most the discrete, because i can change things inside.... not a black box encapsulated...but to bass and voices i feel those chips great!

LM3875 when used with a passive pre and LM4780 with a simple OPA2134 based active pre.

Got both bases covered.

One more vote for the little trooper, LM1875, and I'm enjoying my parallel version right now.

I used to be enamored with the National Overture series, but with the cost of heatsinking and transformers going up I now much prefer the AD1994 and the TDA8920 . The STK428 is on the list to try out.

Since LM3875 is hard to get in Jakarta, Indonesia, I'll vote for LM3876 fed by Nelson Pass B1 Buffer Preamp circuit... Me Lovin' It..


But I also fond of LM3886 punchier sound...
