Default Hypex UcD - what do I need, premade amp or DIY?

I am looking for some really good amps to run my speakers and I have heard that Hypex UcD HG HxR are the best money can buy, is that correct?

I am looking at either 180HG or the 400HG, but I do not know a lot about electrical stuff, neither am I very handy with wires and stuff.

Is it hard to assemble such an amp, are there any guides telling what you really need.

And, are there any companies that sell premade amps of really highquality at a reasonable price?

I have built monoblocks based on Hypex amps, Hypex HG power supply and Hypex supplied torroids. Very easy to assemble. And, for my taste, they really sound good.
