My Kanta No. 2's arrived last Friday, so I am one week into a long (100 hour) break-in. Sorry to read about your cancellation. For me, after years with the Piega P-10's which were too big for my listening room, I am pleasantly impressed at this stage as they break-in. I'm currently over-powering them with Parasound JC-1's, but like the flexibility I now have to go to lower power via tube amps since they're so efficient. They are definitely not too bright for my taste (Be tweeter has been tamed) and for a speaker of this size, the mid-bass and bass is remarkable. Build quality is exceptional too. Good luck with your search.
