Default Paradigm J29 Speaker Stands -- Should I?

As shown below, I currently have my bedroom-system Studio 20 v5s mounted on sand-filled DIY wood stands topped by 1-3/4"-thick maple butcher blocks that bring the stand height to 25".



In part to deal with speaker-boundary-interference issues, I plan to raise speaker height and am considering replacing the existing stands with Paradigm J29 stands (yes, I know what they cost). I'd appreciate pro-and-con or any other pertinent feedback from anyone who has used the J29 with their Paradigms.

Thanks in advance.
