You can have exactly this with Audio-over-Ethernet (AES67 is all the
rage these days), but you would be surprised how expensive this stuff

There are indeed speakers that feature an Ethernet port, but we're
talking >USD1000 here. Each.

If you only want digital, there are plenty of speakers with S/PDIF or
AES/EBU input. Of course, you'd need an S/PDIF or AES/EBU output, but
many computers have an S/PDIF out or can get one via USB.
