With the LM3886, your solution is probably better.

Adjusting the supply voltage on one side in order to trim out the offset voltage is a bad solution for every amplifier.

The output offset should be substantially independent of the supply rail voltages in any opamp style amplifier.

However, a VAS stage without CCS supply/source will change it's Iq when supply voltage changes (both rails changing together), and this changed Iq with push/pull more or less current through the Collector load of the input transistor. This changed collector current will change the offset. This is one of the big disadvantages of a bootstrap feed to the VAS in a P3A (ESP) amplifier.

Marc, I successfully applied your tip in my DIY studio monitor (with LM4766 - another BJT chipamp).

Previously, due to the low feedback resistance (200R and 3k3) in my design, I needed a large feedback capacitor. There was a slight but audible distortion, which is now gone or at least below my threshold .

Schematic here: http://rdimitrov.info/blog/show.php?entry=Minimalistic%20HIFI%20Bi-Amplified%20Speaker%20System

Thanks!
