Elegent and powerful
 
This receiver is perhaps one the most sharpest, and elegant receivers I have owned in quite some time. The power that this produces is not to be linked with any kind of distortion. Everything is as clear and night and day. While the controls may be a little much, and not very well described or layed out. (Meaning its not the most user friendly I have ever owned) It is almost one of the most detailed and pronounced I have had, and it even compares in quality to some of the more expensive ones I h...

Exactly what I was looking for
 
I've had this receiver for a little over a week now, and I am incredibly impressed. I'm a college student working on creating my first high-end stereo system, and this receiver fit the bill precisely. I'm powering a set of Cambridge Soundworks T205 speakers, and they sound unbelievable with this receiver. The towers are bi-wireable, so I wired the high end to the A speaker-set and the low end to the B speaker-set, which allows for terrific separation of the of the high's and low's.bottom l...

HK has great products. Period.
 
I just replaced my 30 year old Harman Kardon HK350i receiver ( and it still worked very well, and yes it was really 30 years old and used nearly daily and for long strectches)with this new HK unit. I couldn't be more pleased. I have it hooked into my ipod without the HK bridge, just basic RCA cables and the sound is terrific. The receiver is driving 6 Bose speakers in 3 rooms thru a Monster cable speaker switch without any trouble or distortion whatsoever. On the old unit I had an Audio Source E...

Excellent Stereo Receiver
 
I just got this a few days ago. I did extensive research on the best price point to quality stereo receivers out there. In fact, overkill on the research. I primarily wanted a stereo system for music listening only. It came down to this receiver and the Onkyo TX 8555. After asking a few people who know audio equipment a lot better then I do, I decided on the HK mainly because of the 20 extra watts per channel. But I bet the Onkyo is excellent as well. One of my reference people said the Onkyo mi...

Perfect solution for the stereo listener looking for digital inputs!
 
I used the HK 3480 (the precursor to this model) for five years and loved it. The 3490 is even better. The sound is more robust and full, not different, but just more refined. It easily powers my Klipsch Synergy speakers and would pair well with any mid-level speakers. With 120w even inefficient speakers will have more than a enough power to move air.Further, the 3490 has an important new feature: digital inputs. This is a very nice option for those who have made the jump to an all digital ...

An impressive package for the price
 
I was in search of a good old-fashioned amp, a replacement for a previous Harman Kardon, so I was a bit biased...but this is an incredibly powered amp, with FM tuner, video inputs, much more, and at a price that causes one to stop dead in your tracks and order it. I did, and I have no idea how they put together such sound quality at such a low price.

HK 3490 vs. HK 3390
 
I doubt there are a lot of people who own both of these receivers, but I now do. It's a long story as to why I did that, some of which will be explained here. If you are trying to decide which 2 channel HK receiver to buy, I can now share with you what I found in terms of how much difference 120 watts per channel makes vs. 80 watts, as well as the value in some of the extra features in the 3490.Having put together an upgraded system about a year ago with the 80 watt HK 3390, Klipsch RF 62's an...

Stunning! But Unexpectedly Short Life Span :(
 
I've owned my previous HK receiver for over 15 years, and it still works wonderfully. I wanted to upgrade to more power and features, so my old receiver will be relocating to my basement. First off, the HK 3490 is absolutely stunning. I've always been a fan of HK's commitment to minimalism but this receiver takes it to a new and beautiful level. The one horizontal row of slim buttons is not visible at all when standing a few feet away, creating the appearance of a completely buttonless perfe...

Nice two channel solution with digital options
 
I formally owned a Rotel RX-1050 and decided to give the 3490 a try. I really prefer a nice 2 channel amp to drive my B&H 603's and the HK does the job well. What I liked that you won't find in other 2 channel amps is two digital in's, xm ready, ipod integration and 2x sub out. For the price you really can't beat it. The size is about 33% larger than my Rotel. The power about 25% more.The controls of course are very limited, source+balance+tone. No EQ.The phono amp provided hum free sound from m...

Great choice for music listeners not wanting surround sound.
 
I purchased the HK 3490 from Amazon to replace a 13 year old Sony receiver. The Sony had served me well, but it had a lot of confusing buttons and features, many of which were related to the surround sound Pro-Logic and video switching functions, which I never used.I wanted to replace the Sony with something that was easier to use. I also wanted to stay at about the same level of RMS per-channel power (the Sony had 110 watts per channel RMS in two-channel mode, the HK 3490 has 120 watts per chan...
