The best, low cost and trouble free way of getting into solid state audio is with a Chip-amp. This is a sure-fire way to good sound quality that just gets better as your design and assembly skills improve. I support DIY all the way because that is what this forum and the kit sellers here, are about, in as many ways as possible.

However, I can also understand noobs wanting to get started right now without the hassles of learning to lay out PCBs properly. Some of us never get proficient or enthusiastic enough to want to carefully etch and drill PCBs every time we want to make a project.

I suggest you read some threads in the Chipamp forum, follow up on the parts and kit sources at the commercial forums like Audiosector and Chipamp and look at the illustrations, manuals etc. They are great products, compact and attractive.

Then, satisfy your curiosity with all the Ebay chipamp kits based on LM3886, LM3875, TDA7294, LM1875 etc. There's lots out there and quite cheap, even if the design and support is not near as good as our own, if I do say so!

The one that John Bali is referring to - is that available as a kit, with the board already printed and all components in a package? I don't mind loading the boards myself, but it would be great to be able to buy as a kit.

Henrik, sorry no kit from me.
But Lazy Cat do: :
VSSA Lateral MosFet Amplifier
But I don't know if that one suit with all you have.
It is also not trouble free
Maybe you try chip amp as Ian Finch say, they are easiest one, you even build by PtP

Thank you, I wish you happy
peace & G B U
