    Anyone have a recommendation for a improved replacement for the LM386?
    8-pin DIP (don't care about pin for pin compatible)
    external gain-set is OK
    low-voltage (<24V) single-supply

    I could go through "all the usual suspects" (manufactures), but thought someone might have a favorite to tought. :)

    The packages for the LM4951 are tiny surface-mount and micro-surface-mount with "bumps".
    They get extremely hot at 1.8W.

    Boy oh boy, I must've been asleep when I looked at that. 10 pin SMD instead of 8 pin DIP. :rolleyes:
