Stereo question

Ok so I listen to music at home by plugging my macbook into computer speakers with a sub and everything....
I was wondering if there was a way to eliminate always having my laptop plugged into the stereo via bluetooth or something because of the emergence of bluetooth headsets and stuff. I was wondering if there was something like a bluetooth stereo reciever that could plug right into the speakers, eliminating the wire from macbook to speakers
so it would go:
macbook-->bluetooth-->bluetooth receiver-->speakers

Logitech make Bluetooth music transmitters for that very purpose. But i'm not sure they'd make use of your internal bluetooth rather they'd use a plugin module....so you're back to wires.

You could use the Airtunes feature of an Airport Express and do transmit over wi-fi
