Default MM Phone preamp DIY kit

Hi,
I have bought a Thorens TD-104 for 30 bucks last week.
I have now to add a phono preamp to my PGA based preamp.
I have seen some chinese kit on ebay, but I don't know how is there quality.
I need something at least with a PCB and without tubes.

Any advice ?

Regards

Why no tubes?

Other choices as a "kit":
Pass Pearl II
Bottlehead Seduction (tubes)
Boozehound labs Pacific based JFET kit on ebay
Oatley Electronics has a nice kit with PS, but it is 6418 based.
Phonoclonce VSPS and its brethren

Thanks Konga and Studeb.
Why not tubes ?
simply because it will not feed my case...

I have found also this one with very affordable price : 6418 Tube RIAA Phono Preamplifier Kit (Oatley Electronics K282)
it uses tubes but not too big

p2p stands for point-to-point. Use a breadboard or project board (a pcboard with a grid of holes) and put your components in it and solder them to each other or use wire to make the connections.
