Looking for good wireless speakers that sync easily to devices.

I'm trying to help my Dad find the right speaker or speaker system. Ideally he wants something wireless, something with incredible sound quality, and something that allows him to really easily play music from his phone or computer from anywhere in the house.

He was looking at the Bose 30 dock speaker, but it isn't Spotify enabled, and I don't think it's what he really needs anyway. I don't think he really wants a wifi smart speaker that can be programmed with Pandora stations. That is too complicated.
I think what he needs is maybe some sort of bluetooth-enabled speaker system? He wants to be able to just play a song from Spotify or his iTunes library on his computer or phone and have it play through the speakers (no wires, no complicated syncing system, etc). He's not super tech savvy, so the ideal thing would be a system that does basically this without a bunch of bells and whistles.
Something that doesn't need to be installed in the wall or ceiling is much better. It would also be great if it could be expanded, with additional speakers being added to other rooms for example.
My dad can be fussy about the sound quality. In the past he has tended toward Bose and JBL speakers - he's not a brand loyalist by any means, so he's open to anything, but the sound quality is really important.
Let's say that money is no object. What is the best possible solution here?
