Mostly I'm just curious and want to unlimber the soldering iron and see what kind of trouble I can get into.

It looks like if source the parts myself from various places it comes to about $250 for the whole thing (i think), and will give my old man something to do building an enclosure. I haven't even looked at speakers yet.
I spent more than that on just the transformers!!!! LOL

I just watched a few reviews of it and it seems like a decent little amp. Keep us posted if you build.

For comparison...here's a side by side of what I built and the little amp you're looking at. I have no idea if I could hear any difference either:
