For a first project, I would strongly recommend something like an AKSA, Gainclone or Elliott P3A, not a Zen amp. You will get a decent amp at a low price and you will learn something. With the Zen, you have to cope with large heatsinks, a large transformer and high currents. In addition, it consumes an awful amount of electric energy (nobody has tried to underrate the heatsinks and use it as a toaster?).

I know this kind of recommendation won't make me very popular out here, but I'm wearing my asbestos flame suit
