    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # HK3490 )

    Rear Connections (Click to View Larger Image)
    Front Connections
    Two 120-watt-per-channel amplifiers with high-current capability
    By leveraging high-current capability (HCC), the HK 3490’s 120-watt-per-channel, integrated amplifier maintains the instantaneous current required to drive nearly any loudspeaker system, delivering dynamic peaks, tight bass and superb transient response at any volume level.
    Striking industrial design
    The HK 3490 fuses many appealing exterior ingredients to evoke architectural excellence. A dot-matrix display with easy-to-read navigation menus relays artist information, track numbers and volume levels.
    AM/FM/XM-ready tuner
    In addition to direct-access tuning and the 30 station presets available for the FM/AM tuner with RDS (Radio Data System), the HK 3490 receiver includes an XM-ready tuner that operates with an XM antenna module (sold separately) for home use. XM radio lets you access additional stations with exclusive satellite-radio content, much of which is commercial-free.
    The Bridge II connector for iPhone/iPad
    The optional The Bridge II docking station (sold separately) works with an iPod or iPhone player to expand your entertainment options. Once connected, The Bridge II even charges your Apple device and works seamlessly with the HK 3490’s system remote control to navigate and play your favorite music tracks.
    Dolby Virtual Speaker and Dolby Headphone modes
    Dolby Virtual Speaker mode simulates a realistic, 5.1-channel surround-sound experience from just two speakers. In addition, Dolby Headphone technology recreates a rich audio soundstage using your conventional stereo headphones.
    High-quality phono input
    A high-quality phono input enables connection to record players fitted with an MM (moving magnet) cartridge to breathe new life into your vinyl collection of LPs and 45s, letting you hear all those classic albums and singles in the best audio quality.
    Remote A/B speaker selection
    By switching easily between A/B speakers, the HK 3490 conveniently lets you hear audio playback in more than one room at a time.
    Comprehensive inputs and outputs
    The HK 3490 features three audio-only inputs, two analog-recording outputs (tape and video), four A/V inputs with composite video (including one on the front panel for video games or portable audio players), a composite-video monitor output and two digital-audio inputs (one coaxial and the other optical). Stereo pre-amp outputs let you connect the receiver to an external power amplifier.
    Seven-device system remote control and remote IR input/output
    A seven-device, programmable system remote control is capable of directing your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and home theater system. Using the receiver’s multilingual, on-screen display, the remote guides you seamlessly through system setup.
    Private listening via headphone jack
    For a more intimate listening experience, the receiver’s headphone output features HARMAN headphone surround mode, which helps create a realistic 5.1-channel, surround-sound experience from a stereo source.
    Harman/Kardon sound: A legacy of achievement
    Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the HK 3490 two-channel receiver embodies the spirit of Harman Kardon innovation, a legacy that discerning audio enthusiasts have revered for almost 60 years. Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.
