floor standing speaker recommendation -- Monitor audio RS6

Current set up -- NAD 320BEE, NAD 521i, Wharfedale Pacific Evo 8s.

I'm currently looking to replace my bookshelf Wharfedale's with floorstanding speakers. Budget is around $1000 (plus or minus a few hundred). I have heard/read some good things about the Monitor Audio RS6s.

Recommendations? Obviously the NAD 320BEE isn't the most powerful integrated amp -- does it have enough power to power the Monitors and/or other floorstanding speakers?

As a side note, I mostly listen to Jazz.

Help is appreciated.

I am very particular to Triangles. Try the used market on Audiogon. Celius, Antal, Altea or Heliade. I have also read good stuff about the lower priced Revels. I'm a fan of higher sensativity speakers. Additionally most have been rated Class A or B.
Having said that the Monitors are sensative too and use a similiar approach to Triangle and Revel.

What about a pair of used Klipsch Cornwall? They are excellent in Jazz.

If you like the evo 8's why not try the floor standers the evo 30's will go very loud with ur amp. Plus they are cheap as a new version is now out.
