Eva Cassiday Blew Me Away with her cover of Wayfaring Stranger....
@dynamiclinearity Amen. It is why I ration the amount of time that I listen to her recordings.

The story behind the recording of Live At Blues Alley is fascinating.

She was an incredible talent. With a unique voice. She died from melanoma - highly malignant skin cancer. There are many tributes. Here is a recent one: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/nov/02/eva-cassidy-singer-songbird-25-years I would a... 
Speakers for daughter
You should also consider a pair of pre-owned Spica TC50. Even though these are vintage, they hold their own; and are usually available for 250usd or so.  
Suggestions: Interesting small speakers with flexible placement
Try to find a pre-owned pair of Celestial SL700. BTW. . . 500 sq ft is hardly a small bedroom.  
Not manufactured any more.

Need help choosing a new CD Player
You should add an AudioRefinement Complete CD player to you list. These are the YBA previous generation second line, but the sound is outstanding.

Recommendations for short tower or bookshelf under 38” tall
The fit and finish of my gloss black Zu Def 4s is outstanding. And as Sbank mentioned, Zu offers a wide range of customizations limited only by your imagination.

I like both the Takatsuki and KR Balloons. I tried many others including Psvane, SophiaElectric, EML, EAT, etc. These are my current favorites. The Taks are a bit richer; the KR balloons a bit more dynamic. When I use my AncientAudio Lektor Prime ...

Add Zu to your list.

I picked up an old ML CDP (no 39) with a built in pre-amp/volume control as a back-up for my Ancient Audio Lektor Prime that had to be sent back to the manufacturer to be repaired. Other than being a redbook only CDP, I am quite pleased with the n...
