Default Help me with my SAND-O-PHOBIA!!!

Hey guys. I am in need of help. For years I have only built devices with tubes. Tube amps, tube pre-amps, a nixie clock, its an illness. I got rid of my Denon receiver years ago.
Well now I need some power. I have no desire to try to get a hundred watts out of a tube amp mainly due to the cost and the fact the my main speakers are Fostex FE203en-s for which I have a Tubelab SE at the moment.

I have a pair of Zaph's L18 speakers I want to set up and I need some watts. They simply do not sound good with low power and the low damping factor of most of my tube amps.

Can anyone reccomend a kit or a PCB that would be good for 100-150 watts? I am not kidding when I say that I have absolutely no idea where to begin.

Thanks for your input!!

You can try any STK4044 series. They work fine, there are versions of about 100W, and are easy to build. Here in Argentina, they are a bit expensive, but I make some amplifiers to make a sound system in supermarkets, and perform very well.

Best regards.
