Suggestions for Tower stereo speakers

I'm looking for a pair of tower speakers for pure audio entertainment in the $1000 range. I've narrowed my list to Boston acoustics VR3, Infinity Beta 50 or Klipsch RF series. Any suggestions?
You might consider a pair of used Vandersteen 2Cs. They would best your current choices in every way. There is a ton of info on these.
What kind of music do you like?
What kind of amp/pre-amp/receiver are you using?
Is you listening room "lively" or "dead" acoustically?

A little over your budget but this is the kind of "mistake" you want to make now, as your system can easily grow with these. No connection to Selah, just a fan.
Of the 3 choices you've narrowed everything down to I would go with the Infinity Beta 50s or the VR3s. Both are better choices than the Klipsch RF series in my opinion.
