datasheet: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/ne5532.pdf

I saw in most opAmps this rate was given as V/us, for example, for LM741 it was 0.5V/us. Is this 9V/ms a typing error? Because if it is not, then this NE5532 is way slower than the LM741 which is a very ancient opAmp(I have been told so many times).

  • \$\begingroup\$ Argument: typos that can be resolved by looking for the authorative parts in a datasheet (in this case, the obvious table, the short description and the part website) don't make great questions, though, @Hearth. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Dec 16, 2019 at 22:51

It is a typo. If you look in the specs section you'll see it specified as V/μs.

Also in the features section: High Slew Rate: 9 V/μs Typ
