Short floorstanders?

Briefly, my friend is looking to replace his Linn Keilidh's for a music/HT system. He figures that 36" is about all he can handle before they will interfere with the screen. For music (the main concern) they will be matched to a Cary SLI-80 and Sony 999ES.
The only thing we've come across is the Totem Forests, but at over $4000cdn + tax new and the scarcity of them used we're looking for other suggestions. Any ideas in the $2k-$3k(usd) used is the target. His music tastes are mainly rock and jazz (eg. Macy Gray and Holly Cole).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again all.
I'm surprised you can't find used Forests in that price range. I have Totem Sttafs for my mains and still love them after 2 years. They're well w/i that price range new. I have a similar screen interferance concern, and these are just short enough.
check out the Monitor Audio silver series, maybe the S8 model. A very short floorstander. Goodguys has them on their sale tables right now.
