Try moving your sim away from the stereo a bit. Then select buy mode before selecting the stereo. From there you can delete it by selecting the hammer or put it in storage. I've had the same message appear when my sim is standing in front of the object I am trying to move/delete/etc. Hope this helps!

when your in the game on a windows computer click Cntrl + Alt + will bring up a blue box in the upper left hand the blue box...type in moveobjects on and hit enter..then grab your sim and move it away from the stereo. Hit F1 to start the game again...then while holding your Shift left click on the the bubble that says Object and then click the bubble that says delete. You have now deleted it using a cheat code. :-D
