Button repeatedly until the PRESET SEARCH message appears in the Message Display, and use the / Buttons to change to the desired bank. Then use the Preset Stations Selectors to select the numbered preset within the bank.
Menu: This button has no effect on the HK 3490, but is used with some source devices to access the sources setup menus. Navigation (/ / / ) and OK Buttons: When XM Radio is in use, the / Buttons may be used to change the channel category or the lettered bank of presets. As described above, press the FM Mode Button to select a search mode. Use the / Buttons to change the numbered preset within a bank when in Preset Search mode, or to change the channel sequentially when in All Channel Search mode. These buttons have no other effect on the HK 3490, but are used to make selections within the on-screen menu system for some source devices. The OK Button transmits the Random Play command when used with CD players. Preset Scan: Press this button once to scan through the stations
you have previously programmed as presets. Each station will play for five seconds before the tuner skips to the next preset station. Press the button a second time to select the current station. If no presets have been programmed, the 0 PRESET message will be displayed. When XM Radio is in use, this button has nothing to do with preset stations. Instead, each press of this button changes the information displayed on the front panel as follows: channel name and number, channel category, artist name and song title.
Before you begin to connect cables, it is important to set up your speakers in their correct locations in the room. See Figure 10. Optimally, the front left and right speakers are placed the same distance from each other as from the listening position, or about 60 degrees apart, and angled toward the listener. The subwoofers location is less critical, since low-frequency sounds are omnidirectional. Placing the subwoofer close to a wall or in a corner will reinforce the low frequencies and may create a boomy sound. You may wish to experiment over time by placing the subwoofer where the listener normally sits and then walking around the room until the low frequencies sound best. Place the subwoofer in that spot.

You are now ready to connect your various components to your receiver. Before beginning, make sure that all components, including the HK 3490, are turned completely off and their power cords are unplugged. Dont plug in any of the power cords until you have finished making all of your connections. The receiver generates heat while it is on. Select a location that leaves several inches of space on all sides of the receiver. It is preferable to avoid completely enclosing the receiver inside a cabinet. It is also preferable to place components on separate shelves rather than directly on top of the receiver. Some surface finishes are delicate. Try to select a location with a sturdy surface finish.
muting, when headphones are being used, or when the speakers are turned off using the Speaker 1/2 Switch. See Figure 12. Consult the manufacturers guide for the subwoofer for additional information.
Step One Connect the Speakers
If you have not yet done so, place your speakers in the listening room as described in the Speaker Placement section. Connect the front left and right loudspeakers to the Speaker 1 speaker terminals on the HK 3490. Maintain the proper polarity by always connecting the positive and negative terminals on each speaker to the positive and negative terminals on the receiver. You may place a second pair of speakers in another room, or in the same room for additional sound power, connecting those speakers to the Speaker 2 Outputs and maintaining polarity. Use the Speaker 1/2 Selector on the front panel or remote to activate either or both pairs of speakers simultaneously. See Figure 11.
Figure 12 Subwoofer Connection
Step Three Connect the Antennas
Connect the FM and AM antennas to their terminals, and plug the XM antenna module (not included) into its connector. The XM module is purchased separately, and must be activated at the time you purchase a subscription. See Figure 13.
Figure 13 Antenna Connections
Right (Spkr 1) Right (Spkr 2) Left (Spkr 2) Left (Spkr 1)
Step Four Connect the Source Components
Use the worksheets in the appendix to note which connections you will use for each of your source devices. For each source, select a source input (Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.). In Table A1 in the appendix, we recommend connecting certain types of sources to certain source inputs to make it easier to use the remote control. The remote is preprogrammed to operate certain Harman Kardon components, as shown in Table A1. However, you may connect any component with analog audio and/or composite video outputs to any source input on the HK 3490, with the exception of the Phono Inputs, and you may use the original remote control supplied with the component. It is not possible to reprogram the HK 3490 remote, or to change the device type associated with any source input.
Figure 11 Speaker Connections
Step Two Connect the Subwoofer
Connect the Subwoofer Outputs on the HK 3490 to the line-level inputs on your subwoofer. The same full-range signal is output through both jacks. Thus, you have the option of connecting each jack to the line-level input on a separate subwoofer. If both pairs of main speaker outputs are in use in different locations, you may install a separate subwoofer with each speaker pair. If you have only one subwoofer with a single line-level input, connect it to the right Subwoofer Output on the HK 3490. For optional auto turnon/turn-off control over the subwoofer, connect the Subwoofer Trigger Output for each subwoofer to the corresponding trigger input on its amplifier. This enables the subwoofer to turn on or off together with the HK 3490. To further conserve energy, when the trigger connection is made, turn the Subwoofer Link Switch on to turn the subwoofer off when the corresponding pair of main speakers is not being used, such as during
We recommend you follow the guidelines in Table A1 when connecting various source components to the HK 3490. However, due to the limitations in the design of the HK 3490 remote control, when using source components manufactured by other brands, use the devices original remote control to operate it. For each audio-only source, such as a CD player, connect the left and right analog audio outputs of the source device to the corresponding inputs on the HK 3490. For sources that have a digital audio output, connect it to the corresponding Optical or Coaxial Digital Audio Input on the HK 3490. You may connect a sources analog and digital audio outputs at the same time; only one connection is active at a time. To select the digital audio input, press and hold the front-panel Source Selector and simultaneously press the T-Mon Selector to change the audio input as follows: Analog, Optical, Coaxial. For audio/video devices, such as a cable television set-top box, in addition to the audio connections, connect the composite video output on the set-top box to the corresponding video input jack on the HK 3490.
The Tape source is used for audio recorders, such as a CDR, MiniDisc or cassette deck. Connect the output jacks on your recorder to the Tape/CDR Audio Input jacks on the HK 3490, and the input jacks on your recorder to the Tape/CDR Output jacks on the HK 3490. See Figure 16.
Figure 16 Tape/CDR Audio Inputs and Outputs
Connect the audio outputs of your turntable or tonearm with a movingmagnet (MM-type) cartridge to the Phono Inputs, and connect the ground wire to the Ground Terminal immediately below the Phono Inputs (not the AM Antenna Ground Terminal). If the cartridge is a moving-coil (MC-type) cartridge, it requires a separate phono preamp (available at your local electronics store) before you connect it to the Phono Inputs. See Figure 14.
To listen to the Tape/CDR source, press the Tape Mon Button. The upper line of the Message Display will indicate the last-selected source, which is always available at the Tape/CDR Outputs for recording. The T-Mon message will flash in the lower line, indicating that the HK 3490 is playing the signal present at the Tape/CDR inputs. When the recorder is in Playback-Only mode, this signal will originate in the recorder, e.g., when playing a commercial CD. If the recorder is in recording mode and has off-head playback capability, you may monitor recording of the source displayed in the upper line. If the recorder does not have off-head playback, you will not be able to monitor the recording. To hear the original source, press the Tape Mon Button to stop monitoring the recording. NOTE: To make recordings, insert blank media in the recording device and set it in Recording mode. The fact that a signal is always available at the Tape/CDR Outputs doesnt mean recording is taking place if the recorder is not set to record.
Video 1 Source
Since this source includes audio and video recording output jacks, it is best suited to a video recorder, such as your VCR or DVR, even though the remote codes are programmed to operate the DMC 1000. Simply use your video recorders original remote. Connect your recorder to the Video 1 Audio Inputs and Outputs. Then connect the recorder to the Video 1 Composite Video Input and Output. See Figure 17.
Figure 14 Phono Inputs and Ground
If your turntable has an MM-type cartridge and a built-in phono preamp, do not connect it to the Phono Inputs. Use one of the other available audio input sources on the HK 3490.
Plug the 1/4" plug on a pair of headphones into the headphone jack on the front of the receiver for private listening. See Figure 34.
Figure 34 Headphone Jack
The HK 3490 may be used with up to two pairs of speakers for additional sound power in the main listening room or if you wish to place the second pair of speakers in another room, or even outdoors (when you select weather-resistant loudspeakers). Select each pair of speakers by pressing its associated button on either the front panel or remote. See Figure 35.
Figure 35 Speaker 1/2 Buttons
Press the button a second time to deactivate that pair of speakers. You may activate both speaker pairs simultaneously, or deactivate both pairs for private listening through the headphones. When either of the speaker pairs are deactivated, if the corresponding Subwoofer Trigger Output is connected to the subwoofer and the corresponding Subwoofer Link
The HK 3490 does not switch the last-selected video source when an audio-only source, such as Phono, CD or Tape/CDR, is selected subsequently. It is not possible to view video while listening to an audio-only source.

REMOTE CONTROL FUNCTIONS 9
Installation and Connections
Audio and Speaker Connections
After unpacking the unit and placing it on a solid surface capable of supporting its weight, you will need to make the connections to your audio and video equipment. These steps need to be done only when the receiver is first installed or when a change is made to the input source equipment. Audio Equipment Connections We recommend that you use high-quality interconnect cables when making connections to source equipment and recorders to preserve the quality of the signals. When making connections to audio source equipment or speakers it is always a good practice to unplug the unit from the AC wall outlet. This prevents any possibility of accidentally sending audio or transient signals to the speakers that may damage them. 1. Connect the analog output of a CD player to the CD inputs 6. NOTE: When the CD player has both fixed and variable audio outputs, it is best to use the fixed output unless you find that the input to the receiver is so low that the sound is noisy, or so high that the signal is distorted. 2. Connect the Play/Out jacks of a cassette deck, CDR, MD or other audio recorder to the Tape Monitor Play jacks 8. Connect the Record/In jacks on the recorder to the Tape Monitor Rec. Out jacks 9 on the HK 3490/HK 3390. When the tape deck connected to these jacks is a three-head unit or has off-head playback, it will be possible to monitor the output of the source being recorded. 3. Connect the audio and/or video outputs of a second audio recorder, VCR or other line-level audio device to the Video 1 Audio/Video Input Jacks 7. If a recorder is used, connect its Rec/In jacks to the matching outputs A. 4. The audio output of any electronics product with a line-level output, such as a TV set, satellite receiver or DVD, may be connected to the Video 2 and Video 3 Audio/Video inputs BD. NOTE: In order to view the video signals of any devices connected to the Video 1 7, Video 2 B or Video 3 D Video Inputs, you will need to connect the Video Monitor Output K jack to the composite video input of your TV or other video display device. 5. Connect the outputs of a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge to the Phono inputs 5. To insure that the phono playback is noisefree, connect the ground wire from the tone-arm to the Phono Ground terminal 2. 10 INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS 6. Assemble the AM Loop Antenna supplied with the unit as shown below. Connect it to the AM spring loaded terminals 1. Cable with 1.5 mm2 may be used for short runs of less than 3 meters. We do not recommend that you use cables with an area of 0.8 mm2 or smaller due to the power loss and degradation in performance that will occur. Questions about running cables inside walls should be referred to an installer or a licensed electrical contractor who is familiar with applicable local building codes in your area. 7. Connect an FM antenna to the FM Antenna connection 0. The FM antenna may be an external roof antenna, an inside powered or wire lead antenna or a connection from a cable system. Note that if the antenna or connection uses 300-ohm twin-lead cable, you must use the 300-ohm-to-75-ohm adapter supplied with the unit to make the connection. 8. If you wish to use external processing equipment, such as an equalizer, you may connect the device to the preamp-out and main-in jacks by removing the Preamp-Out/Main-In Jumper Pins that connect the Preamp Out E jacks to the Main In C jacks, and inserting the external device, Preamp Out to the inputs of the external device and the outputs of the device to the Main Input. Alternatively, you may connect the external device to the Tape Monitor Loop. Connect the Tape Monitor Record/Out jacks 9 to the inputs of the external device, and connect the outputs of the device to the Tape Monitor Play/In jacks 8. 9. HK 3490 is equipped with a digital/analog converter, permitting you to connect any digital music player (CD player, MP3, Mini-Disc) that outputs a PCM digital signal for superior sound quality. Also, a DVD player may be connected for first rate stereo or Virtual Dolby Surround movie sound, provided that you set the DVD player's setup menu to always send out PCM-format from the digital outputs. You have two input options, Coaxial digital In O and Optical digital In (TosLink) P. You can choose freely, and you may use both inputs simultaneously. See page 12 for explanation of how to select the Digital Inputs for listening. 10. (HK 3490 only). With the HK 3490 turned off, connect the optional Harman Kardon to Digital Media Player (DMP) Connector L. Your compatible Apple iPod may be docked in when you wish to use it as your audio source device. Video materials stored on the iPod cannot to be viewed using the HK 3490. Speaker and Output Connections Regardless of the brand of cable selected, we recommend that you use a cable constructed of fine, multistrand copper with an area of min. 2 mm2. When connecting wires to the speakers, be certain to observe proper polarity. Remember to connect the negative or black wire to the black minus terminals on the receiver and the speaker. The "plus" or "red" wire should be connected from the red plus-terminal on the receiver to the "red" plus-terminal on the right speaker and the white plus-terminal on the receiver to the "red" plus-terminal on the left speaker. We also recommend that the length of cable used to connect speaker pairs be identical. For example, use the same length piece of cable to connect the Speaker 1 left and right or Speaker 2 left and right speakers, even if the speakers are a different distance from the HK 3490/HK 3390. NOTE: To assure proper phase, and optimal performance, consult the identification plate on your speaker, or the speakers manual to verify polarity. If you do not know the polarity of your speaker, assure that both speakers are connected with the same polarity, i.e. speaker wires or terminals with any marking should be connected to the red terminals on the speakers speaker terminals on the HK 3490/HK 3390, the others to the black ones (see connections below). Connect the speakers using the following steps: 1. Connect the main speakers to the Speaker 1 terminals G. 2. Connect a second set of speakers, or speakers that are in a second room location, to the Speaker 2 terminals H. 3. When an optional, powered subwoofer (not the active Sub of a Sub/Sat-System) is used, connect the outputs of the mono Subwoofer Out jacks F to the line-level input of the subwoofer. If the subwoofer has no single line input, and if you cannot obtain sufficient woofer level using only one of the two inputs, use an optional Ysplitter to separate the sub mono signal from the receiver into two channels for the two inputs on the subwoofer. When a separate passive subwoofer is used, these connections will be made to the optional amplifier that powers the subwoofer. If a Sub/Sat system is used (active or passive), connect the Speaker 1 terminals G to the
speaker-level inputs on the subwoofer, and then connect the speaker-level outputs on the subwoofer to your main left and right speakers, following the instructions provided with the subwoofer. If your subwoofer can be switched on and off with a trigger signal from the receiver, connect either of the two Trigger Out mini-jacks Q to the subwoofer's Trigger Input with a suitable cable, which usually comes with the subwoofer, or may be purchased separately. This means that the subwoofer (which is otherwise usually switched on and off automatically by an internal signal sensor) stays on as long as you listen to music or movie sound. Even if no deep bass is present in the signal for a while, the subwoofer does not go into standby mode when it is controlled by the trigger signal. Otherwise, when controlled by a bass signal sensor, you may not experience the first bass impulse when bass returns, after the subwoofer has gone into standby mode, because it has to switch on first. This means that you may have a Speaker system 1 and a Speaker system 2 in two different rooms, each with its own active subwoofer that switches on when you select Speakers 1 or Speakers 2. You may also have two active subwoofers in one room, one that is always working with your main Speaker 1 set of speakers, the other to be switched on or off according to your taste if connected to the Sub Out linked to Speaker 2, without any speakers being connected to the Speaker 2 terminals. This makes it easy to add a second subwoofer only when watching movies, where extra bass level may be desirable. Set the uppermost LINK S/W ON/OFF switch that controls the Trigger Out voltage for Speaker Set 1 to ON if you want this subwoofer to switch on ONLY when you select Speaker Set 1. Set the switch OFF if you want the subwoofer to always receive the Trigger Out ON voltage and therefore be switched ON always, even if you select Speaker Set 1 to be OFF. Repeat for the lowermost switch if you have two subwoofers or wish to switch your single subwoofer ON and OFF separately with the Speaker set 2 switch. If your subwoofer is not equipped with a Trigger Voltage input, the position of these two switches is irrelevant. Remote Control Extension If the receiver is placed behind a solid or smoked glass cabinet door, the obstruction may prevent the remote sensor from receiving commands. In this event, an optional remote sensor may be used. Connect the output of the remote sensor to the Remote IR In jack 3. If other components are also prevented from receiving remote commands, only one sensor is needed. They may use this units sensor or a remote eye by running a connection from the Remote IR Out jack 4 to the Remote In jack on Harman Kardon or other compatible equipment. External Audio Power Amplifier Connections If desired, an optional, external amplifier may be used in place of the HK 3490/HK 3390s internal power amplifier. To connect an external power amplifier, first remove the Pre-Out/Main-In Jumper Pins D that connect the Preamp Out E and Main In C jacks on the rear panel. Keep the jumpers in a safe place should they be needed at a later time. Using high-quality audio interconnect cables, connect the Preamp Out jacks E to the input jacks on your power amplifier. Make certain to match the right output to the right input and the left output to the left input. Note that when an external power amplifier is used, no special adjustments are required. All volume and other control adjustments are made using the standard front panel or remote controls. AC Power Connections This unit is equipped with two accessory AC outlets. They may be used to power accessory devices, but it should not be used with high-current draw equipment such as power amplifiers. The total power draw may not exceed 100W for each outlet. This Switched AC Outlets I will receive power only when the unit is on. This is recommended for devices that have no power switch, or those with a mechanical power switch that may be left in the ON position. NOTE: Devices with electronic power switches may only go into a Standby mode when plugged in here. Speaker Placement For optimal listening enjoyment, and for soundfield reproduction that best re-creates the original recording, it is good practice to place the speakers so that they form a triangle with the speakers at the front of the room, and the preferred listening spot at the third point of the triangle. The distance between each speaker and the listener should be identical. For example, if the speakers are 2,5 meters from one another, each of the speakers should optimally be placed so that they are also 2,5 meters from the listener. It is also desirable to place speakers so that their tweeters, or highfrequency drivers, are aimed at ear height when you are seated in the listening position.
Dolby Virtual Speaker: This technology uses a next-generation advanced algorithm to reproduce the dynamics and surround sound effects of a precisely placed 5.1-channel speaker system using only front left and right speakers. In the Reference Mode, the apparent width of the sound across the front image is defined by the distance between the two speakers. The Wide Mode provides a wider, more spacious front image when the two speakers are close together. During a listening session you may wish to adjust the Bass , Treble and Balance controls to suit your listening tastes. If you have used the trim covers to hide the buttons, push the end of the cover until the hidden button jumps out and presses the cover out completely or so far that you can grab hold of it for easy removal. The three buttons are spring loaded and pop in and out with each firm push, to allow for easy operation and flush appearance. Adjust the volume to a comfortable level using the front panel Volume Control or remote Master Volume Up/Down buttons. The volume level is displayed as a negative number of decibels (dB) in the Main Information Display. The volume level is relative to a maximum volume level that has been assigned the value of 0dB. It is important that you make sure never to exceed this maximum volume level (0dB) at any time, in order to avoid possible damage to your loudspeakers due to clipping, a type of distortion that is not audible to the human ear until it is severe enough to permanently damage most loudspeakers. It is also possible, depending upon the program material, for clipping to occur at volumes below the maximum volume level. To temporarily silence all speaker outputs, press the Mute button 5. This will cut the output to all Pre and Sub Outs and to all speakers, but it will not affect any recording or dubbing that may be in progress. When the system is muted, the MUTE indicator will light in the Main Information Display. Press the Mute button 5 again to return to normal operation. For private listening, plug the 6,3 mm stereo phone plug from a pair of stereo headphones into the front panel Headphone jack 4. One or two separate sets of speakers may be connected to the HK 3490/HK 3390. To listen to one of the speaker sets, press the Speaker button 6 or 7 on the front panel corresponding to the desired speakers or press them both to listen to both speakers pairs. The active speakers will be indicated by the Information Display showing SPK 1 or SPK 2. If both pairs are in use, SPK 1+2 is shown. Both sets of speakers may be turned off for private headphone listening.
When using the HK 3490/HK 3390 for the first time, the unit will be in a standby mode, as indicated by the amber color of the Power Indicator 3. Once the unit is in standby, you may begin a listening session by pressing the System Power Control 2 on the front panel or the Main Power On button on the remote. Note that the Power Indicator 3 will turn white. This will turn the unit on and return it to the input source that was last used. The unit may also be turned on from standby by pressing any of the Source Selector buttons on the front panel 89!#$& or remote. To turn the unit off at the end of a listening session simply press the System Power Control 2 on the front panel or the Main Power Off button on the remote. This places the unit in the Standby mode, and the Power Indicator 3 will turn amber to remind you that the unit is ready for operation when a power command is received from the remote. Power to any equipment plugged into the rear panel Switched AC Outlet I will be shut off. When the remote is used to turn the unit off it , is actually placing the system in a standby mode, as indicated by the amber color of the Power Indicator 3. To dim the brightness of the front panel display, press the Dimmer button on the remote or on the front panel ^ (HK 3390 only). The first press will dim the lights to half normal and turn the light inside the volume button off. A second press will turn the display completely off. Press the Dimmer button ^ again to restore the display to normal brightness. If you press any button on the remote control or front panel, the display and volume button light up for a few seconds, then dim again.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When two speaker pairs are connected to the HK 3490/HK 3390 and are to be used simultanously, the impedance of each speaker must not be lower than 8 Ohms. To program the HK 3490/HK 3390 for automatic turn-off, press the Sleep button on the front panel ( or remote. Each press of the button will increase the time before shutdown in the following sequence:
NOTE: When the FM reception of a stereo station is weak, audio quality will be increased by switching to Mono mode by pressing the FM Mode button * until MONO appears in the display. Preset Tuning Up to 30 stations may be stored in the HK 3490/ HK 3390s memory for easy recall using the front panel controls or the remote. In order to program preset stations into memory, you must use the remote control. To enter a station into the memory, first tune the station using the steps outlined above. Then: 1. Press the Memory button on the remote. Note that the MEMO and PRESET indicators will light and flash in the Main Information Display. 2. Within five seconds, press the Numeric Keys K corresponding to the location where you wish to store this stations frequency. For all preset numbers above 3 the station will be stored directly. Note that for the presets 1, 2 or 3 either you press the corresponding number and wait for 5 seconds or you press a 0 befor you press the 1,2 or 3, then the station will be stored at once. 3. Repeat the process after tuning any additional stations to be preset. Auto Preset Preset stations may also be programmed automatically for the entire FM band. To automatically enter each station that may be tuned with acceptable quality into the HK 3490/HK 3390s preset memories, first select the FM band. Next, press and hold the Auto Preset button until the station frequency indication begins to increase. Release the button and note that the tuner will search the entire FM band, and stop briefly at each station that has acceptable signal strength. The HK 3490/HK 3390 will automatically assign a preset number to each station, and then search for the next station. If the FM tuner finds fewer than 30 FM stations with acceptable signal strength, the Auto Preset tuning will scan up to two more cycles until the remaining vacant preset memory spaces have been filled. The automatic scan process will stop when all 30 preset memory locations have been filled or the entire FM band has been scanned three times or the Auto Preset button is pressed again. NOTE: Using the automatic tuning mode in areas with more than 30 FM stations will completely fill the preset memories, and overwrite any previously memorized presets for either AM or FM stations.
TIP: The automatic scan process may enter stations that you do not wish to retain in the memory, or it may enter the same station on the same frequency (if more than one scan is made) or on more than one frequency. These unwanted stations may be removed from the memory using the Preset Clear function outlined below. Recalling Preset Stations To manually select a station previously entered in the preset memory, press the Numeric Keys K that correspond to the desired stations memory location. To manually tune through the list of stored preset stations one by one, press the Preset buttons % on the front panel or remote. To automatically scan through the stations entered in the preset memory, press the Preset Scan button @ on the front panel or remote. The tuner will cycle through the list of preset stations, stopping for five seconds at each one. Press the button again to stop the scan at your desired station. Clearing Preset Stations Unwanted preset stations may be erased from the units memory to make it easier to tune only those stations you want. To remove a preset station from the HK 3490/HK 3390s tuner memory, first tune to the station using the Preset buttons % on the front panel or remote, or by entering the preset number directly, using the Numeric Keys K. When the preset station to be removed has been tuned, first press the Memory button. The words MEMORY PRESET will appear in the display, and the preset position number will flash. Next, press the Clear button within five seconds. The preset station will be removed from the memory, and the action will be confirmed by the brief appearance of the word CLEAR and the preset number location in the Main Information Display. That memory location will now be empty, and you may program a different station to that location, or leave it empty.
In normal operation, the audio source selected for listening through the HK 3490/HK 3390 is sent to the Tape Mon Rec Out 9 and Video 1 Record Outputs A outputs. This means that any program you are listening to may be recorded simply by placing machines connected to the outputs for Tape Monitor 9 or Video 1 A in the record mode. Moreover the source connected to Video 1 Input 7 may be recorded to a recorder connected to Tape Mon 89, rather than turned around. When a tape recorder with separate record and playback heads is used, you may monitor the output of the recording by selecting the Tape Monitor Input Selector 9. Note that the TAPE M. Indicator will light in the Main Information Display to remind you that you are listening to the record playback instead of the actual input source being recorded. As long as Tape Monitor 9 is selected the previously selected input source remains routed to the Record Outputs 9 B. Press the Tape Monitor Input Selector 9 again to turn the monitoring off and listen to the actual input source. Note that changing the Bass, Treble or Balance control will not affect the recordings, only the preamp and speaker outputs.
In the rare case where the units operation or the displays seem abnormal, the cause may involve the erratic operation of the systems memory or microprocessor. To correct this problem, first unplug the unit from the AC wall outlet and wait at least three minutes. After the pause, reconnect the AC power cord and check the units operation. If the system still malfunctions, a system reset may clear the problem.To reset the system, first turn the HK 3490/HK 3390 off either by pressing the Main Power Switch on the rear panel S to OFF, or disconnecting the unit from the main power source. Next, press and hold the MUTE 5 and the Preset Scan @ buttons at the same time on the front panel ONLY.When the receiver switches On and the Main Information Display shows the word RESET, release both buttons. The receiver returns to Standby Mode. Note that when the system is reset in this fashion, all tuner presets will be lost and must be reentered. If the system is still operating incorrectly, there may have been an electronic discharge or severe AC line interference that has corrupted the memory or microprocessor. If these steps do not solve the problem, consult your dealer or an authorized Harman Kardon service center.
When The Bridge is properly connected and a compatible iPod is properly docked, the Display will read DMP/CONNECTED. Once that message appears, use the remote to control the iPod. See the Function List Table further down on this page for a listing of the remote control buttons that have been programmed to control the iPod. In brief, the Skip Down, Play and Skip Up Buttons D and the /// Buttons F and OK Button X may be used in a similar manner to the corresponding controls on the iPod. More complete details on operating an iPod using and the HK remote are furnished with. NOTES: The Play and Pause functions are not available unless content has been selected for playback by navigating the menu system. While a selection is playing, the song title, artist and album name, if available on the iPod, will scroll across the upper line in the Display. The lower line will display the elapsed time of the track on the left, the play mode icon, and the time remaining on the right. When your iPod is docked in The Bridge and playing, you can choose to either use the display on the iPod or switch to the receiver's display for information. To switch to the receiver display, press and hold the Menu M Button until the iPod shows a large checkmark and the text "harman kardon" in its display. Now the receiver display shows song title etc. as described above. You may now enter the iPod's menu system by again pressing and holding the Menu M Button, to show MENU in the receiver display. You can navigate in the MUSIC menu structure just like you would do directly on the iPod. However, if you select one of the other menus, such as the SETTINGS Menu, the active display will revert to the iPod itself. When you have performed the changes you wish in Settings or other menus, revert to the receiver's display by once more pressing and holding the Menu M Button on the Remote. If you have entered the MENU function on the receiver display, but wish to exit without changes, just wait a few seconds, and the MENU option disappears again. You may also change back from the receiver display to the iPod display again by repeating the same procedure: press and hold the Menu Button until the iPod display becomes active again.
This product is equipped with a memory backup system that preserves tuner presets if the unit is accidentally unplugged, turned off completely by disconnecting from the main power source or subjected to a power outage. The units memory is stored in an EEPROM, and thus the HK 3490/HK 3390 will retain information such as programmed presets for a virtually infinite time without being connected to a main power source.
(HK 3490 only)
When Harman Kardons (optional) is connected and a compatible Apple iPod is docked in The Bridge, press the DMP Selector Button C7 until "The Bridge" appears in the Display to choose the iPod as the input source, allowing playback of audio materials on your iPod through your high-quality audio system. Pressing the DMP Selector Button C will also activate the remotes control codes for the iPod.
Using the Remote Control
It is convenient to think of the functions of the remote control buttons in terms of pages, where each source device (e.g. CD player) represents its own page of remote functions. The result is that some of the keys will perform different functions depending upon which device page has been selected prior to pressing the key. Device pages are selected by pressing the Source Selectors , which also changes the input source selection on the HK 3490/HK 3390. Source Selectors need not to be pressed with each function, but only when you intend to skip to another device to be controled. The Video 1, Vide 2, Video 3, Tape Monitor/CDR and CD device pages are factory-programmed to operate compatible Harman Kardon products. Video 1 controls Harman Kardon DMC players, Video 2 and 3 controls Harman Kardon DVD players, Tape Monitor controls Harman Kardon CDR players/recorders, CD controls Harman Kardon CD players. Please refer to the table below for specific information on the default functions of the affected keys for these devices.
