The key components of the traditional Hawea intermediate system are:

AVM SD 3.2 streaming pre amplifier
AVM MA 3.2 monoblock power amplifiers, one per chanel
Gauder Akustik Arcona 200 4 way loudspeakers

The AVM Evolution SD 3.2 is a high quality and versatile multi-purpose preamplifier. It incorporates a quality DAC and streaming client with support for web radio, Tidal lossless streaming, Network attached storage, USB playback along with two analogue line inputs and a high performance headphone amplifier. There is both wireless and wired LAN connectivity, trigger outputs and a one-touch update facility.

The AVM Evolution MA 3.2  monoblock uses a linear power supply with a 750 VA transformer to drive a class D power amplifier rated at 420W into 4Ohm. A monoblock can be located adjacent to each speaker meaning expensive speaker cables can be replaced by a less expensive XLR equivalent. The amps 'produce a truly dynamic punch, especially in the bottom end and presented a balanced mid range that leaned toward neutral and highs that  were sparkling without being annoyingly so (see  https://positive-feedback.com/... )'.

The Gauder Akustik Arcona 200 loudspeaker is the top of the Arcona range of speakers and is an excellent match to the MA 3.2. It is a 4 way low resonant drop-shaped floor standing cabinet that includes four sophisticated crossovers that individually support an Air Motion Transformer tweeter and  upper mid range, with a 5" low midrange and two 9" woofers using X pulse aluminium drive units.

The AVM CS 8.2 'all in one' streaming  amplifier is 'a remarkable piece of kit. it manages to do nearly everything you can ask of a single box unit with considerable skill. Usually putting everything in one chassis means compromise, and as a rule it’s the amplifier that suffers. Not here, the way that AVM have combined tubes and transistors is very impressive indeed, using the one to bring finesse and subtlety to the power of the other. If class D can be this good then the future does indeed look bright' (Jason Kennedy, Aug 2017, 'www.the-ear.net')

The minimalist intermediate Manapouri system features the Last Frontier Music server paired with the AVM CS 8.2 all in one digital amplifier and Gauder Akustik Arcona 200 speakers.

The AVM CS 8.2 is the Stereophile  'All in One' reference system and includes support for  common streaming formats and content (eg. Tidal), a CD mechanism based on the exclusive TEAC drive, and a large selection of analogue and digital connections. It also includes AVM Quad-DAC with support for PCM 384kHz/32bit and DSD. This can be accessed by USB from the included Last Frontier music server. The CS 8.2 valve line stage and integrated 500w/4ohm amplifier generate 'a very refined, open and airy sound that allowed high level listening without a hint of discomfort'.

The Gauder Akustik Arcona 200 loudspeaker is the top of the Arcona range of speakers and works well with the CS 8.2. The Arcona 200 is a 4 way low resonant drop-shaped floor standing cabinet that includes four sophisticated crossovers that individually support an Air Motion Transformer tweeter and  upper mid range, with a 5" low midrange and two 9" woofers using X pulse aluminium drive units.

The Wanaka high end audio system features the proven Gauder Akustik RC 7 MKII speaker configured with the diamond tweeter. The RC 7s are driven by the AVM SA 8.2 stereo amplifier. 

The low end bass extension is achieved by using 2 REL 212Se  subwoofers capable of realising 19Hz (-6db). 

The preamp is an AVM PA8.2 configured with Tube output module, line input module with tone control, phono input module with support for MM and MC cartridges, and the digital module incorporating an AVM Sabre Ultra DAC.

Finally, the Last Frontier Music Server is used to source digital music for output to the SIngxer SU-1. The Singxer converts the USB signal to i2s for input to the Holo Spring R2R Ladder DAC using an HDMI cable. The combination of a Sigma Delta DAC in the AVM and the ladder DAC in the Holo Spring provides useful digital processing options.
