I bought the kit and parts with the intention of building it myself. When I showed it to a friend of mine to see what he thought of the kit, he just put it together for me in less than an hour and sort of robed me of my fun. It seemed like it took longer to order the parts than put it together but my friend is pretty experienced. If you can assemble a CMoy, you should have no problem. Enjoy the kit. BTY, I still recommend the LM4562 and the battery pack adds some punch but takes up more space. If you should decide to invest in a MC cartridge down the road, the CineMag step-up transformers still seem like the best way to go. These amazing devices are responsible for some very expensive active headamps showing up used at bargain prices.
