Default Quasi-Saturation

Hi All,

I was reviewing the spec sheet on the lm3886. On page 5 Figure 2 there is a Cap between the + and - labelled Cc . The notes page (page 7) mentions that it :
Reduces the gain(bandwidth of the amplifier) at high freq and avoids quasi-saturation ossillation of the output transistor.

What does that exactly mean? And how important is it? And how does one determine the correct setting

Thanks in Advance
