Default Cheap SET Kit for UK

to go with my highly efficient OB speakers that i will be making, i think i will need a new amp, i have been recomended to a couple of ones, the 'Sophia Baby', the 'Bottlehead SEX amp', 'Nelson Pass's Zen amps' and the 'Charlize amp'.
i have seen online, the Yarland FV-34III EL48 and the Aurexx Crystal 1, both for around 200 or less, are there any complete kits that i can make like these (even though there not kits) that are easy/simple to make that i can get in the UK?

the driver is likely to be an Omnes Audio L8....

You can follow the DECWARE SE84 model.

A scaled down version of the "El Cheapo" B+ supply using a Triad model N68X power trafo will get the job done. Try Farnell to source the power trafo.

Use a low cost, good sounding, 12AV7 as the voltage gain device. A preamp is not needed when a CDP is the signal source.

Hammond model 125ESE O/P trafos are my advice. While better O/P "iron" is clearly indicated, its cost will "bust" the budget.
