Since you made several comparisons to the larger Monitor Audio PL 300, I wonder, subjectively, how much deeper and/or better the Kanta No3's bass performance is than the Kanta No2. Especially considering there is only a $2k price difference.

I haven’t heard the Kanta No.3, so I can't say how its bass performance compares to that of the No.2. Sorry!
