Can you help me figure out the right sound system for my parents?

My parents have good speakers set up in their living room and kitchen, and all the wires lead to the living room. Back in the '90s, they had a receiver with the 5-disc CD player hooked up to the speakers, and could turn on and off each room's speakers (so the music would be playing in one or both rooms). They don't use this anymore. The speakers are still in place.
I'd like to set something up that would allow them to play music through their computers or ipods/iphones, preferably via bluetooth or wireless. I'm thinking of something hooked up to the speakers that would allow them to turn on and off the speakers but would accept wireless input.
Am I just looking for a receiver that accepts bluetooth connections? Are there other options out there? I've looked a little into Sonos, but they don't plan on being in the house for more than a couple of years and so I'm not sure it's worth the effort.
