Default LM1876T diy HiFi amplifier build, questions, PCB, components, so on..

Heya everyone, yesterday i ordered single LM1876T chip to change TDA7265 wihich sounds terrible, speakers are rubbish too Defender mk35 somekind of Hi-Fi they say...
Well i removed the preamp JRC4558 known as worst opamp known to man but great for guitar applications.

Now i designed single sided PCB with fillet plane ground...
Now sure if everything is okay, well... PINout taked from datasheet and also SCH
they say LM1876B pinout is shown...

Heres the PCB ive designed, may have lots of mistakes...

Non inverting or negative - input caps 2,5mm ones on board are hooked with ground.
Also there are few jumpers one on input other on the output side.

How about star grounding ? If mute=not connected then take care about pop. You don't need Rin ? Is it possible to move Cs (electrolytic + ceramic) to power pins ?

Yeah, star grounding may be best solution, right now i have thin rail going to pin 10...
We can move everytihing on board, im new to this PCB designing thingy, well i have made few amps, DAC's, preamps and so on but making PCB with minimal amount of space and without knowing what the heck is the difference between LM1876T and B
Took pinout from B type...

LM1876T = non-isolation package.

Is that lm1876b ?

The two film caps on the +ve & -ve rails are in the wrong place.
They should be on or at the Power Pins of the Chip.

Using a groundfill means you'll get crap sound because the noise currents from the input socket are going via the caps (C1, C? unmarked) to gnd. Shared ground impedances suck worse than TDA7265s for sound. I get fairly decent sound out of the bass/mid driven by my TDA7265s, the tweeter sound though is very, very dull.
