What I have: a MacBook Pro running iTunes. What I need: some speakers and a way to get the music into the other rooms of a small house.

So, thus far, I've just been connecting the computer via the auxiliary port of an old tuner/amp from which I have a couple of old speakers wired in. Works fine in this particular room, but now I'm wanting to install speakers in several other spaces of this approximately 1200 sq ft ranch-style house, including a home office, the living room, and a rec room in the basement.
Clearly, I need speakers of some sort for each space and a way to get the music from the computer to the speakers, but what and how? Could probably run traditional wiring, but it might be a pain. Figure there are more options technology-wise these days, but am pretty much a noob on such matters. Help me consider a range of possibilities from "simple" to "complicated but cool." Also general prices and brands/models to consider, if possible. Much appreciated as always.
