Looking for LM3875 chips
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:21:27 PM »
I have 3 stereo gainclone kits I decided to finish.
But need the LM3875 chips.
Anyone have any?

I feel your pain! The LM3875's were part of the Texas Instruments "chipocalypse" of 2015, so they've been out of commission since then.

I've had great success with this seller on eBay, having bought (and tested!) both LM3875s and a couple of (legendary) LM4780s. Check his store to see if he has any floating about:

(Many, many sellers on eBay are peddling fake/unreliable chips, but this guy seems legit. I've tested both my LM3875s and LM4780s and they appear to meet or pass specifications.)
