The powerful HK 3490 stereo A/V receiver combines all of an audiophile’s must-haves with an array of multichannel extras. What are these features? Start with a high-performance phono pre-amplifier, high-current power amplifiers, an FM/AM/XM®-ready tuner, video switching and Dolby® Virtual Speaker technology. The receiver can connect to nearly any A/V device, thanks to its pre-out/main-in connectors, three audio-only inputs, two analog-recording outputs (tape and video), dual subwoofer outputs for easy connection to multiple low-frequency cabinets, 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). Add The Bridge II docking station and an iPhone or iPod, and the HK 3490 links to current-generation digital music players. A programmable remote control operates multiple components within your home system, while A/B speaker selection lets you hear audio playback in more than one room. You can even listen to this receiver through your headphones, thanks to the system’s headphone jack and Dolby headphone mode. In addition, the HK 3490 looks beautiful, with the clean, streamlined design that’s a Harman Kardon® tradition.
