Harman Kardon HK 990 Stereo Integrated Amplifier with Digital Room Correction and Dual Subwoofer Bass Management – Part III

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
3 November 2011
  • Summary: I wrote much of this material in October 2010. At the time, my sole reference was the service manual (the actual unit arrived several months later). I intended the piece to be a preview of the HK 990, which had just been shown at CEDIA. Since then, the HK 990 received a positive review from Tyler Stripko and at least one other professional reviewer. It is rare for a relatively low-priced unit to achieve such consistently positive reviews.

Harman Kardon HK 990 Stereo Integrated Amplifier with Digital Room Correction and Dual Subwoofer Bass Management – Part II

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
27 October 2011
  • Summary: We ended at the analog preamp out. Our journey through the HK 990 DSP-centric integrated amplifier has concluded. While the unit's design requires a multi-disciplinary approach and hundreds of parts, the basics of the design at the block-diagram level is reasonably straightforward. Along the tour, I highlighted the similarities of the HK 990 to an AVR. With the HK 990, there were only two channels with which to deal.

Harman Kardon HK 990 Stereo Integrated Amplifier with Digital Room Correction and Dual Subwoofer Bass Management – Part I

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
20 October 2011
  • Summary: With the addition of digital room-correction, the HK 990 travels into unique space for a stereo integrated amplifier. As a dual-domain device, its internal electronics are conversant with analog or digital inputs, including high resolution files. Recording from digital and analog sources is simplified. In addition, the HK 990 has no mechanical controls for improved reliability, improved gain tracking, and increased stereo separation.

  • Excerpt: It has been a good few years since Harmon Kardon had a 'wow' moment in the audio world. Its efforts have been concentrated in the AV arena for far too long now, but, it seems, high-quality audio has never been out of the firm's mind.

  • Summary: Einen HiFi-Verstärker für mehr als 1.000 Euro leistet sich nicht jeder. Der Test des Harman/Kardon HK 990 zeigt, wie viel Qualität in einem Gerät dieser Preisklasse steckt.
  • Pros: zweites Boxenpaar anschließbar, Plattenspieler-Eingang (MM + MC), Aufnahmewahlschalter, Subwoofer-Anschlüsse mit Frequenzweiche, hervorragende Messwerte und Klangqualität
  • Cons: Lautstärkeregler wenig griffig

  • Conclusion: Jeg lovede dog at der skulle komme et ”men”, så det kommer her. Bassen er kan forekomme en anelse blød, og jeg kunne ønske mig en lidt bedre kontrol på det her punkt. Her er A-A9MK2-K faktisk at foretrække. Den stikker dog på ingen måde af, og virker ikke rumlende på nogen måde, samtidig med at definitionen stadig er ganske glimrende. Derudover er A57 den eneste forstærker i testen jeg har fået til at klippe ved høje lydstyrker.
