iTunes Last Played and Play counts are important to me. I understand those functions don’t work using the Sonos player. Is it possible to play music via iTunes on my Mac using the Sonos speakers without using the Sonos player? I know I can do that via Airplay on my iPhone -- but that also does not compute Last Played and Play counts. I have sophisticated playlists on iTunes that don’t translate specifically to Sonos. I love the speakers but want to keep the versatility of the iTunes Player. Thoughts?

That certainly suggests an issue with Apple’s software on the Mac specifically, ignoring AirPlay 2 as a source for counting. None of the “counting” software is at the speaker level. You could, however, prove me wrong, if you have a set of non-Sonos speakers you can use AirPlay 2 to connect to from the Mac, and show that iTunes is counting in that case.
It may be worth checking with Apple about that, since it certainly seems odd that it works one way on your iOS device, and another on the MacOS device.
