SoundCloud's regular audio quality is 128kbps, but premium subscribers can select a 256kbps stream.
(It's in the settings, on both the web and android clients)

I can't see an option to select the streaming quality for Soundcloud, in the Sonos app.

Can Sonos use that higher quality stream from Soundcloud?

If there's no option in the Sonos controller, then you get what you get. The real question should be, are you already getting the 256kpbs stream or only the 128kpbs stream?

At the end of the day, Sonos has absolutely no control over which stream you're getting. They're provided with a location at SoundCloud to point their service at, and they get whatever SoundCloud provides. You may be better off asking the folks at SoundCloud.
