@clearthinker  Ok now even more anxiety! As soon as I saw the phone number, I said WTF. I was very attached to the idea that I rally wanted the unit, even though I saw the red flags. Paypal saved me!

Egg carton for soundproofing?
My wife is saving egg cartons to use for this purpose.I think we will glue them to foam core sheets and make panels to scatter around on our exercise room walls. It is mostly for the TV sound. she wants to spray paint them too. It will be funky.  
Compact ~20WPC Tube Amp
I Have the Cabin CS-55A commented by @henry53  I bought it for $2220 from a New jersey distributor. I spent about $800 on good tubes. It is a great amp, dead quiet, plenty of power with my Monitor Audio Silver 500 speakers and REL T/5X sub.  
I have found out why new cables and tweaks actually work!
And all this time I thought the dust acted as a sound attenuator. I think I will tape swffers to the wall! Visually amazing too.  
Tubes, cheese, wine and cognac
Everyone agrees that the old sound better. There are some newer small companies that are making some great sounding tubes. The question is how? Is it the glass, the solder, the wiring or metal used in the plates? Or just the craftsman's touch.  
When someone tells you it's a $40,000 amp, does it sound better?
Possibly my ears can't discern the difference between 20 and 40 thousand. I will be better off with 20 thousand. My only question is how do you listen to all these different sound systems in your room. Tested with the same songs and the same volum...
