Looking for a black brushed mental bookshelf speaker
 Perhaps you can find a used pair of Jern Audio 14ds. 
A system for my college-bound daughter
Powered speakers would be my choice as well. Peachtree m25 is similar to the audioengine which are good as well but the m25’s have bluetooth, digital inputs and phono stage. Get some stands from monoprice and a turntable and your all set.

Boston Acoustic A series either 200 or 400. Or better yet try and find a pair of the flowing from ADS: L1090/1290/1230/980. I prefer the L980’s.

What companies, out of Business, did you LOVE???

My Brief Affair with a Hegel H90 Integrated Amp
That about sums up my experience with the h160, I just couldn’t connect with that amp on any level. 
Throughly disappointed with my new Yamaha A-3000 Integrated.......
