Parents currently have a ~16" 4:3 flat panel with terrible speakers sitting on a book case attached to a digital cable box. It is in a kitchen close to living room and dining room so the goal is to improve the display size and to significantly improve the audio to be useful beyond just a kitchen TV, without running wires and without clutter. Preferably around $500 budget.

Would like to replace this with:
- 24" 16:9 1080P LCD Monitor (cheaper than a small TV but need a recommendation since not all monitors would be suitable for TV)
- Sound Bar or similar
- Need to control volume with cable box remote or separate remote since LCD panel won't have volume

Nice options would be
- wireless streaming to the soundbar
- listen to digital cable music channels without the monitor being on
- CD Player (connect a portable unit or built-in)

Suggestions appreciated, thanks
