Sony has put out a list of all the TVs that will support the feature on its website.

Speaking of audio, the HT-S40R can output 600W power. The soundbar supports Dolby Digital. Connectivity options include HDMI ARC, optical and analogue. It of course supports Bluetooth (version 5.0). There is also a USB port to connect your phone to it for instance.
