    In your opinion, which one of these chips produces better sound? The LM3875, the LM3876 or the LM3886?

    I doubt there is any difference.

    The '75 and '76 are practically the same, and have a better S/N ratio than the '86.

    Sound quality is pretty subjective to a persons perception.

    Here is another few of things I learned in the sound business.

    1) Noise is more noticeable than distortion.

    2) Under promise and over deliver.

    3) Give noise more weight than distortion when considering #2

    Choose the IC that gives the lowest noise. Rate it conservatively.
