No.  Sonos is limited to 24 bit 48 kHz.  Ultra HD is 24 bit 192 kHz (and is pure unadulterated snake oil - see this link https://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.html).

It‘s UHD and shown with a logo, but limited to 24bit 48kHz. 
24bit to 16bit is the important difference between Amazon HD and UHD. 
And not all Sonos Speakers support UHD, just the newer models.

Right.  I should have specified that it was downrezzed Ultra, not that it can’t play Ultra.  Thanks for clarifying (and it’s still snake oil).
