You may wanna check out this thread, where we talked about how to bring computer audio to Sonos. A little more advanced of a setup but, it can be done.

Actually, you can; but it's not cheap. I have two of my computers hooked to Sonos Connects and if works fine. I also have Echo Dots connected and they take advantage of the nice Klipsch speakers I have attached to the computers.

Good discussion here.
Another way of doing this for Sonos kit that has line in is by wiring a Dot to it, and then using the bluetooth option on the computer to feed the Dot; this is useful if the speakers are not being placed flanking the computer, with voice control as an added bonus. But a line in somewhere is a must.
