Harman Kardon HK 3490 Stereo Receiver

3 August 2009
  • Summary: Priced at $499 the Harman Kardon HK 3490 stereo receiver offers great audio performance and plenty of useful features. Despite the lack of a learning or universal remote control, its sound quality makes it easy for me to recommend the HK 3490 for a main stereo system or as a bedroom, dorm room or second audio system.

Harman Kardon HK 3490 A/V Receiver: It Means Excellence

Personal Electronics buzz
30 March 2009
  • Excerpt: The Harmon Kardon HK 3490 receiver lives up to its reputation for excellent audio products. I am an audio-nut and I would not own a majority of rapid fire manufactured audio equipment on the market today. Harman Kardon is mass produced, but it still maintains its individual zest for craftsmanship. I recently bought the HK 3490 A/V receiver on sale for $336. It retails most places in the high $400 range.

Harman/Kardon HK 3490

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. Il permet de développer les 120 W sans crainte d’une surchauffe de l’appareil. L’alimentation emploie un transformateur classique qui attaque la carte principale disposant du redresseur de courant et des condensateurs de filtrage.
  • 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
