Default Simplest, Cheapest, easiest amp to build?

What is the easiest Solid state amp to build (home audio). It'll be my first time and I somewhat have an understanding of resistors, capacitors, and such. Should be a fun project for me. Thanks

Definately the easiest amplifier to build.

I really hope this order pushes people to finish their projects in a timely matter... unlike the other huge Aleph-X orders, where I have only seen a couple of finished amps with the 2000+ boards shipped out. I am going to organize a contest after a large portion of the kits are shipped out, trying to provide incentives for finishing projects with the kits. I won't post details until the time comes.

Get your order in soon, as I am counting up the orders on Monday evening, and ordering the parts accordingly. Here is a link to the order page:

Drop me a mail if you have any questions.

I am selling them for $4 each on my order page... and you can get the set of 3 pcbs (2 channels and power supply) for $15 if you don't want the full kit.
