Default Chip Amp Kits, Components and Competance

ok heres the deal, ive done some soldering in my time have a basic understanding of electronics ect.. have no idea about amp design touched on it in A-level electronics for about a week for the basics but that realy is it.

ok so the question is i need about 50 - 60 watt to drive my monitor audio radius r90 speakers and would like to dip my toes into the world of diy audio, however i would prefer not to go through the hassel of sourcing components ect. my soldering skill are realy pretty good however have not tryed SM components but will be willing to try. ive had a look at and it seems like a pretty nice amplifier however where would i get the toroid tranformers ect... im lost with mains conversion aswel.

also im using the DAC listed here, is there an inclosure that maatches this design anywhere on the net?

Build a kit.

Toroids (and bits not usually included in kits) available at Rapid, Farnell (25 min order) or RS, or Maplin for shorter lengths of wire than a drum.

It's the toroid wattage and output voltage that matter, you'll find one bought in the UK will suit 230V input.

Vikash sells the chipamp kits and the appropriate voltage transformers for a good price. That's where I got mine from. Be quick, he's shipping the last of his stock.
