Mark Rehorst blogged about his LM3886 based stereo amplifier build:

Several years ago, National Semiconductor came out with some very high performance, easy to use audio power amplifier ICs.  I was in need of an extra amplifier so I could biamp some of my home-built electrostatic loudspeakers so I tried the LM3886 chip.
This part was chosen because of the ease of use, power output, turn-on and off thump suppression, low distortion, and built-in protection against shorts and thermal runaway.  There isn’t much more to ask of a power amp than that.  When driving electrostatic speakers, you can’t have too much protection!
