About Harman/Kardon

The Harman/Kardon HK-3490 Receiver combines all of an audiophile's must-haves (high-performance phono preamp, preout/main-in jacks, high-current amplification) with an array of multichannel extras (digital-audio inputs, video switching, dual subwoofer outputs and Dolby Virtual Speaker technology).

Add The Bridge II docking station and the HK 3490 will connect as elegantly to your newfangled iPod as it does to your time-honored turntable. The HK 3490 isn't a snob about where the music comes from, as long as it sounds great when it reaches its final destination - your ears.

Harman/Kardon Features

  • Superb Design: This receiver features a high-end design approach encompassing everything from transformer design and storage capacitor size to discrete output circuitry and minimal use of negative feedback.
  • High Current Capability (HCC): HCC is an overall design approach encompassing everything from transformer design and storage capacitor size to discrete output circuitry and minimal use of negative feedback. This enables the receiver to combine tighter bass & superb transient response.
  • Ultrawide Bandwidth Amplifier Technology: It features an Ultrawide Bandwidth Amplifier capable of reproducing audio with less noise, superior phase linearity, greater headroom and an accurate frequency response (20Hz - 20KHz).
  • XM Satellite Radio Ready: Simply plug an XM Passport System (option) into the unit's XM port and activate the service to start receiving uninterrupted radio programming of your choice.
  • Bridge II Ready: The Bridge is a docking station (option) that enables connectivity from your iPod to the unit's DMP connector input. Your iPod effectively becomes another Harman component flowing through the receiver.
