I am seeing very high current draw on Vcc upon power up. Vee is steady at approximately 50mA, but Vcc is initially current limited by my power supply (1A) and falls to approximately 50mA after a few seconds. My circuit is essentially identical to the Typical Application circuit shown in Figure 2 of the LM1876 datasheet. If I add a series capacitor with the load (8ohm speaker) the behavior is eliminated. I would prefer to avoid the use of these caps in the final design.
Thanks in advance
