Do you have any intact samples of this device? If you measure a diode to substrate (V-) or to V+ (easily checked with a multimeter) on an NC pin, then the fake hypothesis gets stronger again...

A little more searching yielded this thread:

I can't get this to work.
Anyone else have problems ?

They may also be remarked. The LM4700 is rotated like that. The LM3886 & LM3876 should have double bond wires to the ouptut, Vcc and Vee pins. If single wire it is absolutely not a LM3886 or LM3876. The LM4700 also has a Standby pin so see if there are wires there. If you can get a scope you might be able to read the name on the die. This will tell you what it is but this can also be faked.

It would be quite a big mistake to assemble parts wrong. And these parts are tested after assembly unlike some super small ICs where test is limited to wafer form only. Possible National made an error but more likely there is something 'funny' with these parts.

Last week I cracked a couple of LM3886T's and LM3886TF's, witch absolute can't be fake. Since then I had a new key-ring
It was exactly the same as yours, same die on an same "strange" angle. So I really think the chips are the "original" National ones.

Success with youre amp!

Well maybe it changed some time but Robertj88 is right, the LM3886 is rotated just a little counter clockwise, just like your picture. The die ID should be at the bottom towards the right to look at if you have a microscope. So it is looking more like you do not have fakes, might want to spend time double checking circuit.

Sorry for the confusion earlier about rotation.

Default 1. Psu

1. PSU (Suspected!)
The unregulated PSU was built based on carlosfm's psu design with small exception, I have used two rectifier bridges instead of one, the transformer is about 400VA, with center tapped secondary (3 wires), after I have assembled the psu, I mesured the voltages on the output without the amp connected,and without any load, it was nearly +-30V, far in the safe operation area of the LM3886.
