You'd need an Internet connection but yes it's wireless streaming. Only for iDevices. 

 

Here's a Bluetooth option:

I would go for the Revo axis xs as I have found Revo to be good sound quality, the unit is very stylish and it has the dock as well:

There's also Roth which is fairly highly regarded (and the main man posts here so you could probably get his attention with a specific thread if you were interested) -
