Although the schematic is large, the board really helps to simplify building.
This might take an hour or so of soldering, but it should be easy.

P.S.
I don't have complete information on the post build checks and adjustment of the trimmers. Can someone please contribute that documentation?

You have already provided a link to the adjustments and checks originally posted by ostripper. Click on 'direct link to original documents'. In that zip file there is a file called
'DIYA-AMP -construction-advanced-options.txt'. It has all the details used for constructing and testing the amplifier.

I used a 600va 2x40v one for mine. The amp is capable of 180w into an 8 ohm load so there is some headroom. or you could use a couple of 300va ones. Oh yes and I also installed a soft start.

C7 can have up to 120v across it. As long as your caps are rated to maybe 200v you should be right. I am not sure why c8 should be silver mica may be someone else knows. It only shows a couple of volts at clipping under ltspice simulation. Another reason may be also that micas have a lower tolerance.
