FIRST 24 HOURS - **updated**
 
If you're not picky about your audio - don't read any further. If you are seriously considering this amp you probably are a pretty serious hifi enthusiast anyway. I just received the amp yesterday and have spent several hours of listening with it. The way you hear every piece of new gear is relative to what you already have. So first let me explain my set-up so you get a sense of where I'm coming from...About a year ago I upgraded my speakers from a set of so-so Infinity speakers...

HK 990 is a True Audiophile Amp - Amazing!
 
I dont write many reviews, but im compelled to do this one since im so impressed with the HK990.I recently got into Hifi about 6 months ago. Like anything i do, i get a little obsessed. I went and bought an NAD 375bee amp for about 1300 dollars. It was ok but I It wasn't really satisfied. Sound was colored with warmth and crisp extended highs were missing. I was wanting something more so i went and bought a Roksan M2 amp (rated #1 amp for 2011 in the 2000 dollar range from whathifi...

Great Sound
 
First time owning Harman Kardon product and i love it.The HK990 is amazing with its 150 watts of power butseems to be more on hand what was specified.The bassis incredible and midrange is sweet also the trebleis better than my M15hd.I hook my ATC SCM19 to thisamp and it is delicious despite my speakers screamingfor 300 watts the HK990 is more than capable of deliveringthe power.Great amp with a beautiful,almost neutral sound thathas captivate...

A tale of two units,it's not good
 
I have a 2.1 stereo system so when I read the reviews for this amp I thought it would add several features missing from my system. I was looking forward to the built-in dac and room correction most but the added power also interested me. I ordered directly from Amazon and the amp arrived in perfect condition. The amp is big and heavy and imho a beautiful piece of work when off. When the amp is on the power light and light all the way around the volume knob are a very bright white that cannot be ...

Pure Sound
 
I purchased this item in October 2011 and connected it to my Pioneer multi-CD player and Phillips 4 ohm speakers via a digital cable. The sound is excellent. Also, I had to contact the manufacturer for help setting it up and found that HK customer service was superior.

Turn on the Amp and let it disappear in the music
 
Bought this amp for about a year now. This amp is used to play CD (and SACD) by a Sony SACD player (scd-xa5400es), driving a pair of Gallo Ref 3.5.Typical of a dual-mono amp, which has two transformers (one for channel), the sound is very smooth. The power is more than adequate, and the details are also great. This amp helps elminating the hardware from the sound, so you can concentrate on the material (usually music, but sometimes video also) being played, rather than thinking ab...

defective
 
As soon as I turn it on...with nothing connected to it, goes straight into protection mode. Second model did the same thing. Terrible Q&A.

Outstanding! And now a collector's item....
 
The only downsides here is that Harman/Kardon has discontinued this outstanding product, and that the owner's manual is next to useless. The manual wasn't a huge pitfall for me because if one can set up an AV receiver (and I can) then one pretty much knows what to do. Otherwise, this amp will blow your drawers clean off. Period! I am using it configured at 4 ohms resistance where the advertised output is 300 watts RMS per channel. For speakers I have both channels driving one each JBL 4311B Cont...

A super unit... with the right speakers
 
This unit is really SOLID at reproducing sound.Beware if your speakers only cover up to 20k Hz., however.This HK unit puts out well above 20k (that's the first harmonic of only 10k) so speakers that can only handle up to 20k have a tendency to clip resulting in distortion at higher frequencies.That's exactly the reason why owners of this unit think it too harsh at higher frequencies.Many speaker manufacturers make newer models that can handle this.That's like buying...

Epic Sound!!!!!! HK990 Amplifier is simply perfect sound!!!!
 
The look and the sound lives up to the hype, it's exactly as Harman/Kardon describe it. This powerhouse HK990 Amplifier has all the options you could want. My love of old vinyl records has been taken to a new level... I didn't think it possible! This bad-boy sounds epic no matter how loud I turn it up, and it definitely gets even better after the break-in.
