23 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Avec son châssis rigide, l’Harman/Kardon HK 3490 inspire la robustesse. L’intérieur de la machine laisse d'ailleurs entrevoir une conception propre et des cartes bien rangées. On note particulièrement la taille du dissipateur thermique.
  • Pros: Conception, Tuner AM/FM, Section vidéo, Entrée audio numérique, Modes Dolby Virtual Surround
  • Cons: Pas de bypass ou de mode direct, Manque un peu de détails sonores, Boutons peu accessibles
