there are a lot of projects to controll sonos devices from linux devices (personally I like a lot Noson http://janbar.github.io/noson-app/) but I would like to know if there is a way to stream the audio of a linux pc to a Sonos device?

As I use Macs I found that Nicecast form rougue amoeba made it an absolute breeze to setup a local audio stream, that I could then add as a radio station in the Tunein stations and play on my Sonos system.
I did find this link, also maybe there's a simple solution like Nicecast for Linux?
Thank you @Johnnie for your fast reply
Set up a web radio for my need is like to shoot a bird with an atomic bomb 🙂
I was looking for something more simple. On my android phone I've found this app https://www.airaudio.eu/ which works great, and I would like to find something like for my pc.
I will look more and I hope to update it!
The android app you linked to is very interesting.
And also some useful information here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/187086/how-do-i-set-up-live-audio-streams-to-a-dlna-compliant-device
Since you apparently run ubuntu, I think this would be applicable to you. Do note that there will always be a very noticeable delay when streaming your system audio, since you can't control how much buffer the receiving device will do.
