looking for good tenor for good price

I have been playing for 5 years and need a good all around sax. My price range is 700-1500. I am looking at the jupiter 889, the LA sax800, amati at 532. I need it to hit the low as well high notes and I need it to last. which of these are best suited for the job if you know of any better in my price range please don't hesitate to say so.

    i just bought a jupiter 889 tenor 1 month ago and absolutely love it-i played 2 concerts with it and found the intonation perfect as well as the mechanics flawless. don't take to heart all the jupiter bashers-they need to justify why they payed 3000 dollars more for a horn no better then a jupiter

      BUY THE JUPITER!!!!!!!!! It is an absolutely amazing horn for its price. It is extremely sound in its key action tone and intonation. I play it for concert, marching, pep, and jazz bands. It is an extremely flexible instrument
