Default Affordable, complete, power amp kits

I am looking for an affordable kit amp project for a Christmas present for a friend. He has seen me build an Avondale NCC200 amp and I think would love to have a go himself.

It would have to be a relatively simple project to build, I will of course help him but I think he would get more out of it if he did it himself. Also, the ideal would be if it was all in one, so he (or I) did not have to spend hours hunting down parts. The ideal kit would be a 60W/channel solid state power amp kit, as inexpensive as possible

Any ideas?

Does "complete" include the power transformer, filter caps, and heat sink???

May effect some of the responses that you might receive.

look at www.qkits.com.

The only complete "ready to plug in" kits I'm aware of are the Velleman kits' Qkits is a North American Online source but I believe they are actually manufactured in Belgium..

I thought Adcom makes 200w "modulars" that you can drop in their chassis to make 2, 5 or 7 channel power amps. Those modules come in with heatsink and fully assembled / tested, for just $200 a piece. they are good for 200w too but I am not sure if it is for 8-ohm or 4-ohm.

Take a look at www.velleman.be . They sell nice all-inclusive kits for a nice price. Their designs are a bit unorthodox, but sound is quite good.

Just a note, in case you overlooked it. If it for Christmas, don't
order from outside Europe, since you will need it within some
two weeks.

I can't come up with any suggestion for you, though, except
what has been said already.
