The best used, high quality moniter $1000 budget
fritz carbon 7's a bit over your budget, but well worth it, definitely a giant-killer otherwise check out ascend sierra-1's for under $1000 
B&W 805D stands? Experience?
go with a VTI stand and fill it with stand, best bang for buck 
Finally saved 3000 what is a good setup.
go with fritz carbon 7 monitors and spend the rest on an integrated, krell is what i used, it'll be the best bang for your buck, the carbon 7's are giant killers 
Zu Omen or Tekton Lore
some pics of my M-Lore, im liking the satin white finish, cabinet quality is pretty good considering the pricegot it hooked up to a decco2, as for the sound, i'll have to post some thoughts later on, after more listening 
Totem speakers and others that I should consider?

Fritz Carbon 7's vs. Dynaudio 1.3SE
the carbon 7's are nothing short of amazing, they're simply unbeatable at the price they sell at, easily competes with (and defeats) much more expensive speakersthey are truly something special. fritz's attitude and service is the icing on the cake. 
intermittent static out of one channel?
the thing is, i JUST sent the nova in for repair because i thought it was the nova causing the issue, they sent it back and said there's nothing wrong with itthe noise will come for a minute or two, then disappear for a while, then come back rando...
