Thanks,

What do you mean when you say "equal in quality"?

They are pretty much as kits now when people started selling boards and matched transistors sets.

By "equal quality" he probably meant same price range.

Damn it Boaz you cut Nelson real deep! Let's hope Nelson Pass is a good sport and is going to forgive you !
I mean, you are talking to the real deal here, not just some "johnson" that doesn't even set foot in the shop, as such you should at least include Pass's products among the high end quality stuff you would like to achieve!

Sorry for that general question (Nelson).
I didn't mean just kit, it can be a design made by any of you which I can buy parts and assemble (Actually I think such a design would be better than a kit).
As a speaker DIY fan, which builds is own speakers, I'm intrested in building a DIY amplifier for speakers such as proac 3.8, for examining. I thought maybe you can suggest me such a design.
I thought that high end companies might sell even a lower quality amplifier than one can assemble by his own.
I'd appreciate your help.

Build one of the Alephs, either 5 or 2, although my recommendation goes for Aleph2 monoblocks. You can find enough info on this forum as well you can order PCBs and matched output devices. Using search option recommended.

You just can't go wrong with those amps and building something else wouldn't be wise.
