Hi, sure it's possible by using the Sonos PLAY:5's LINE-IN option. Unfortunately, streaming 3rd party apps to the Sonos system wirelessly isn't possible. That said, you can share your music library to the Sonos wirelessly.
Hello, thanks for the reply...I would like to connect a "play 1 or 3. " to have it working as my desktop audio...
I understand that " play 5 " has a AUX line....but if there a way to have the pc " seen" by "play 1 or 3"??

No there's isn't, not in any sensible fashion. Sonos isn't computer speakers, if you want computer speakers, buy computer speakers.
flybyme,

I have not used any, but there are a few 3rd party PC programs that can create a streaming service on your PC that can play on the SONOS system. In principle, this can work, but there will be a time delay while the stream is assembled. If you are a gamer, you will be very frustrated with this setup.
