I had a newer version of the Montis. I have the esl 11a's. I went to X5's with a Don Sachs all in preamp driving an LTA ZOTL 10 MKII amp and I just love it. All rounded out with Anticable connects, PC's, and speaker cables. The finest system I've had and one of the finest I've heard. I will tell you it was a toss up for a while but when the X5's opened up and I did a little positioning of the speakers, they just continue to amaze me. I'm enjoying the music instead of analyzing the sound.
