LM1875 has no mute circuit and requires one for both turn-on and especially turn-off. Else you will hear that pop.

I use the one below

I've used this one in another application. It seems well made and will do the job although it needs a (small) separate supply I you want to avoid turn-off thump /noises too. It also provides DC offset protection.

I modified mine so that it would (hopefully!) "crowbar" the amp should the relay contacts weld due to high current, protecting the speakers - however that scenario seems unlikely with an lm1875.

The supply transformer I used was this one
