Thankyou for your thoughtful responses. My search for speakers has been quite instructive. I own acoustat model 4's and demo'd avantgarde uno, soliloquy 6.5, magnepan 3.6, revel f50 and martin logan prodigy. I like the detail and etheral feel of electrostatic/planers. For me, I've learned that there are alot of really fine speakers out there. I ended up getting the Montana XP. They seened to my ears to do the best of boh worlds. They were beyond my budget but I reached a bit as this particular pair were a trade in and therefore a good deal.
I want to particularly thank the Sales manager for Montana, Art Paloso, who lives right in my town of Orlando. I can't tell you how warm, patient, generous and knowledgeable he was. Again, thank you for all your responses. I certainly would still be interested in those who have had experience with Montana. It opened my eyes to a world of very good speaker companies who might not be as well known as the more
well advertised companies.
