RE: $1000 will give you a choice of

The Sherwood S5000 is an EL84 amp. No way that is going much over 15 WPC. If it is one of the later series with 7591's maybe 20 wpc.

With $1k to spend, I'd build a 12B4 linestage, and learn something that can be used to resurrect a power amp later. Then spend the remaining $700 on a re-buildable amp, or set of monoblocks....or by that time, maybe just decide to build your own amps... :)
cheers,
