An All-in-one contains a built-in amplifier, mixer, player, and speakers.
Some All-in-one devices contain a very small monitor. For a larger monitor, you will want to connect to your TV.
In addition to your TV, an All-in-one device will need a power source (AC adapter, USB cable for computer connection, or batteries) and a microphone which may or may not be included with the device. The All-in-one should contain a jack for a second microphone for the most flexible usage.
