Default Where too start

I want to give this DIY lark a go. My setup was a full Arcam Alpha 9. CD, Intergrated AMP, 2 Power AMPS running a set of Mission 753's. Sadly i had to get rid of it as baby on the way. These days have gone and now it's time i enjoyed my self.

Im very confused with whats what or even if this is the right section.

Can someone please give me some guideance and direction to what i should be doing 1st.

I started by doing simple mods to existing equipment in order to practice removing components and replacing them. Work on something that you can afford to lose if it goes tits-up, or buy an old CD player or amp and practice on that.

You could build a gainclone by using this schematic. Just solder each component to each other, you don't need a circuit board.
