Hi CJDBerridge,

No the SONOS system is based on WIFI protocol. 
It is possible to stream music stored on an iPhone to a Sonos PLAY:1, but must be connected to your routers wireless network.

Here is a FAQ with more information: SONOS setup

This is very disappointing as the sonos software is so limited compared to iTunes or Spotify.

Since your using iTunes I assume you have apple device. There is a piece of server software called airsonos that if you leave running on your home computer will enable AirPlay to your sonos speakers.
Where do I get this?

Not sure if it is even viable today. Apple tends to change their copy protection to foil unauthorized hacks like this that circumvent their DRM.
And given that the thread was 2 years old, it's likely that it's not viable.
