If your laptop has bluetooth, morotola makes a product that does exactly what you are looking for. It will take a signal from a laptop across the room and send it to the stereo system.
Motorola DC800
It isn't quite hi-fi, but if you adjust your equalizer correctly it doesn't sound too bad. If you don't already have bluetooth, you can pick up a dongle for a decent price and then use this. Check around for prices though. I picked up one of the DC800's at radioshack about a month ago for $20.

If it isn't quite hi-fi, and sounds bad, don't waste $20. Hi-Fi is a mono AM radio tube amp that is less distorted than ones made before 1950. Bluetooth sounds awful by your description!

Simple! Wireless speakers are called "radio". Just plug an ipod transmitter into your Mac, and turn your radio on, and the sound from your laptop will come out of your speakers.

. Slingbox is not exactly wireless - it requires Ethernet.
. I plugged wireless speaker schematic into Google and saw some stuff that might be useful.
