Sorry, This product is no longer available



Harman Kardon have developed the HD990 CD player with the partnering HK990 amplifier much in mind – as evidenced by the pair of XLR balanced audio output sockets, which match the single balanced input of the HK990 amplifier. Made primarily for superb sound quality without compromise, but also with gorgeous understated looks, the Harman Kardon HD990 will provide your hifi system with a superb quality CD source, ensuring all of the detail and ambience on the CD comes flooding through. There are many ways to take the audio signal from the Harman Kardon HD990 to your chosen amplifier, both digitally and analogue – for a digital connection, there is both an optical and coaxial digital output, then there is HRS (high resolution syncronisation) to allow the clocks of the CD player and HK990 to be locked together, removing jitter. On the analogue front there are both gold plated unbalanced stereo phono outputs and the aforementioned stereo XLR balanced connections. Invest in the superb Harman Kardon HD990 and you will hear music from your CD’s better than you have ever imagined.
