It's the best kind for good electronic solder joints. Don't use the 60/40 type.

I've listened to one of those for years until it recently gave up.
I liked it very much.

For SQ I'd swap to Wima or similar filmcaps where possible ( the smaller caps lets say under 1uF),

I had a 2x15 1A toroidal transformer powering mine.

When it comes to solder, my favorite by far is the 60/38/2 (2% Copper).

I've built several of those. They're quite good for the price but the overall sound quality is quite dependent on your choice of op-amp.

I looked at those, but went with another called the E5, from Weiliang, sold by a seller called "Minishow", on the auction site.
I got it because it didn't have any op amps, and have been very pleased with it.

This folded cascode job? Why not.

I don't really like the 75 ohm output impedance though (and who knows whether it's stable without that), unless you just happen to have headphones that appreciate this kind of value, plus I highly doubt you'd get anything even resembling original 2SK170s with a kit like this (there's like a gazillion fakes of these now-rare discontinued devices out there, none of them being remotely close in their characteristics, the only known substitute is the Linear Systems LSK170).

It will be a little bit more involved than a kit you buy ready to mount, but here's another one which I like the schematic of:

F5 Headamp ?

More involved because you will have to have PCB made (unless you find someone on that thread with extra to sell), order components, etc...
