Multimedia home server solution controlled by iPhone/iPad and plugged into existing speakers/sound system - does it exist?

We just moved into a big house and suddenly plugging your iPod/iPad/iPhone/PC in order to listen to music starts to be more and more cumbersome.
What I imagine as a solution is a device that has some storage (1TB for example) or uses external storage. This device should be connected to the home network (WiFi) and also connected via an normal audio cable to my speakers.
This thing should have an autonomous audio player on it which can be controlled from all my devices by the most natural and easy way. I presume that later in my life it would be good to have the same function for video also.
I checked some solutions but all of them are all-in-one devices that also have the built in speaker. Am I missing something obvoius here?
