Is LM3875 better tham LM3876
 
Hi,

I intend to make a GainClone amp but LM3875 is not available. I have bought LM3876 instead. I read somewhere that LM 3876 sounds inferior to LM3875. Is this true?

Thanks in advance,
Goldy

I can put a small amount of money that those two has exactly the same chip!

they ain't
the 3876 has a mute, the 3875 hasn't

what if the 3875 is nothing but 3876 permanently unmuted?

it certainly is.

Your first post said no, your second yes.

It's only a resistor which is probably burnt away in LM3876.

I said: no, they aren't identical (not totally)
and yes, the only difference is certainly the mute circuit

but it may be more that a signel resistor

Gentlemen:

Please stop this crap and answer the original question.

Which one sounds better?

I'm guessing that they both sound about the same.

Bricolo 8th February 2004 04:35 PM

If one should sound better, it would be the 3875 (less components in the signal path)

Frank Berry 8th February 2004 04:54 PM

"If one should sound better, it would be the 3875 (less components in the signal path)"

I can agree with that statement.

I have both chips. I'll build two amplifiers. One with the LM3875 and one with the LM3876.
I'll listen for myself and then measure the performance and report back.
