Default Need advice on two preamp kits.

I've decided to try my hand at building a Valve Preamp kit to use with my SS Monobloc amps. (Link Below)

http://www.ird-thailand.com/products/mb100/mb100.htm

I have narrowed it down to two kits from Australia, as these are easy to obtain for me and very cost effective. (Links Below)

http://www.diyfidelity.com.au/produc...products_id=43

Could I get some opinions on these two kits and which would be the better sounding kit to make?

Thanks In Advance.

Dunno about sound, but WOEFULLY overpriced

This kit comes complete with all components, tubes, power supply module with tube rectifiers and a 100VA toroidal power transformer.
Why on earth would those require a 100VA tranny

I'm sure it's a bit of a PIA to ship down under, but the sonics of the Bottlehead Foreplay III (bottlehead.com) can't be beat for the $$--as far as I know. I haven't heard the ones you asked about of course.

I ship to .au often and it's cheaper and easier than across the country to Toronto
