  From your description, it was crystal clear KC06 can not hold candle to the B3 - thank you for $aving me $ome $ !
  B3's bass at its funkiest ...
I am afraid not . For nemerous reasons - I am afraid that demise of Telarc ( they were the pioneers in true sense of the word, from the choice of the music to the sound quality ) has seeds of doom exactly in that; too outlandish "alternative" catalog, recorded in too high sound quality for the general public to accept and swallow. And $u$tain Telarc with record/CD/SACD sales... Besides - that kind of SQ would be severely compromised in anything less than at least CD...

Listening with B3 at the moment to the :   http://www.classicalcdreview.com/stanislaus.html   This recording has been hitherto "unlistenable" ; if  the level has been kept so that at the full blast of the organ  equipment still somehow "survived", it was too quiet at anything but the peaks - or you could have the average levels at the correct volume and peaks herondously distorted.   Havi B3 is the first audio "whatever" I have heard that is capable of giving this...
"Collateral damage # XY" -    http://www.dx.com/p/vertu-ccav-s-cycling-bike-bicycle-hollow-out-seat-saddle-black-230766#.U2JI7Pl_v9Q   http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Multi-Color-Comfort-VERTU-CCAV-S-Cycling-Bike-Bicycle-Hollow-Out-Seat-Saddle/251328102406?_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109&_trkparms=aid%3D555012%26algo%3DP   This does look tempting  - review from dealextreme says it can also support heavier riders. And unlikely someone will come up with yet more...
The answer is a resounding YES. Depend$ what you are after. If it is "only" repeatedly carrying your head home on the shoulders, can be as lowly as ( or similar too ) : http://www.dx.com/p/bicycle-led-cobra-style-silicone-safety-light-grey-white-red-249653#.U2IXx_l_v9Q http://www.dx.com/p/2-led-3-mode-white-red-light-fog-bicycle-lights-black-pair-2-cr2032-51737#.U2IkKPl_v9Q Testing this on open road in pitch black night produces the desired result - vehicles will change...
Thank you ! Although not hung on the biggest bell, I also happen to have the K-340. Not listened to in... longer than I care to remember. I find there is far too much disparity between dynamic and electrostatic drivers, giving an incoherent sound. I know there are tons of mods - but my priorities lie elsewhere. As I write this, cheating Havis with JVC HA-S500s at the moment, listening to the same song as played by the chick with the mutually (dis)liked smile - by the kids...
It is not only replacing/aligning the cart; TT itself has to be cleaned, lubed, minor but all important settings have to be done, etc, etc. I might start phono setup, with pics of the real styli, their performance as measured by an oscilloscope, maybe brief "needledrops", in duration short enough no legal action regarding copyrights can be launched back at me, etc.  If one has the knowledge what to look for, a really good setup  (used, off ebay, craiglist, etc ) can be had...
+1.
