Keeping it simple

I have an 42" LCD on my wall in my kitchen. Speakers sound horrible. 4 kids use this tv. I have direct tv. I want to add a receiver/dvd player and only two speakers for simplicity of install and use. Any suggestions. Can I simply by a htib with small speakers and utilize only two without the subwoofer?

BTW, I have mounted the tv on the wall, ran the hdmi cable in the wall to a piece of furniture below. I would like to have a remote that works without opening the doors.

Again, this is not a main tv, just want to sound better.

1) absolute cheapest, but not quite as convenient: self-powered studio monitors hooked up to RCA outs on television

2) just a tiny bit more, cheap 2 ch receiver, + speakers. try this sherwood that was $60 forever, even up till two days ago, sale is over

remote control, radio freq, up to 100ft, includes the blaster, + 6 stick on emitters, only $80 shipped to your door, its what i use:

speakers, try some behringer 2030p at $130 pair, or krk st6 for $198.
