What is your budget? That will dictate the answer.
You are probably looking at a receiver (amp + tuner) w/ an iPod doc (either proprietary to the amp or a universal w/ standard analog hookups) and a CD player. You will also need an impedance matching speaker selector.
What about volume controls?
I saw another user post a link to this product for a similar question:
But it'll probably beat your budget.

I have a three room, 6 speaker home system wired up. I want to drive the system with a shelf unit or even a boom box, if I can find one to fit. Ideally, it would hang on the wall, but I could install a shelf for it, too. The speakers are Phoenix Gold ATC-8's in the ceiling. I would like to dock my ipod and have AM/FM and CD, and anything else would be overkill. The hangup is how much power do I need to drive these speakers? Some of these shelf units have 10W/channel, and that seems a little lean to me, considering the speakers are rated for 200W. I don't want to have Vince Vaughn over for a frat party or anything, but I also don't want to harm these speakers with too little power. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the great forum.
