Red face Chipamp Comparison Help?

Trying to figure out which of these would give the best sound (ignore the price):
LM3886 68Wx2 HiFi Audio Amplifier SRH-19 - Boards | Kits | Components | Modules | Tools
LM3886 Amplifier Kit | Chipamp.com

Any hints? Other suggestions?

seeing as they both use the same chip they probably sound pretty similar , sorta like comparing apples to apples .......

Maybe try the Audiosector LM4780 Dual Parallel kit.
That is what I'm currently building and I ran it in stereo for a while and really liked it.

LM's chips are good, but if you look for better sound, Go discrete!!!
My first amp was the Lm3875 from Audiosector, it sounded good but some members here told me to try discrete amps and I did. My first discrete amp was the NXV200 from Aussie amplifier (very good) and after that I try many others from diferent companies. I know one thing... I am not going back to the gainclones for sure!!!

Here is a little blurb I did in response to a similar question.

The idea of Best Sound could mean anything.
The most malleable chip that is also easy and very clear is the LM1875, with excellent odds of getting the sound you want. It is a simple op-amp (not polluted by extra features), there's a lot of designs for it, and it is rather easy to fine tune it to do whatever sound you like.

Every time you double the amp power, you get just 3db more from the speaker, which is not a very significant change. So, if 25 watts per channel isn't loud enough, then a very few decibels more from 60 watts won't be impressive either. Therefore, if you're looking for high power, hi-fi in a chip, go for an LME chip.
