Great Mains for $1000?

I am currently considering upgrading to some new floorstanders, and have narrowed it down to some good used classics. I'm running Kimber pbj, NAD 317, and a Denon DCM-280.

The finalists are (used):

Vienna Bach
Vandersteen 2ce
Audes Jazz
Paradigm Studio 80

I don't have the ability to listen to all of these in person, so any feedback you all might have would be greatly appreciated.

I like the Vandersteens too. I auditioned a pair of 2CE cigs some months ago (based on Audiogon recommendations) and I thought they were very impressive in their price range. Unfortunately, they did not pass the WAF test, so I had to focus on 'traditional-looking' speakers for my living room. The only other speaker on your list that I've heard is the Paradigm, which is a nice speaker too.

I agree with Fishwater - look into everything you can.
I own a pair of Vienna Bach in a second system and they are great speakers, but make sure you demop them filled with sand. The bottom of the speaker has a hidden compartment that is intended to be filled with sand.
I listened to mine both ways and let me tell you the bass will shock you after the speakers have been filled with sand.

Plus, in Beech or Rosewood finish they put the Vandersteen to shame. The fit and finish is far superior to the Vandersteen or Paradigm. As for the Audes, I have never seen or heard them.
Used to own Vandy's, and no question they were great 10 years ago! However there are bigger and better speakers on the market for the price.
