Default Where does the name "Gainclone" come from?

Where does the name "Gainclone" come from? I have had it told for me but I've forgotten.

Is Gainclone allways = LM3875?

It's nifty name, but let me guess where it came from. Cloning is a type of duplication, so the gainclone amp is duplicating amps with same gain. Then these amps are run in parallel configuration. I see no reason why other chips cannot be used to do a smilar thing.

I don't normally agree with Rod, but in this case I do.

After hearing all the hype about these chip amps, I ordered a few today to try. We shall see......

Yes, me too ( 5 pcs.) but when you buy an amp consisting of 2 chips for 2 dollars a piece I think the price is rather high. A 1250 dollars amp must offer more I think, at least a cooler case.
