Best new tv

I just purchased the sound bar 700. I have a 10-year old model Samsung tv that only has optical audio output.

does anyone recommend a particular new television that will pair using hdmi arc with the sound bar and surround speakers to provide the best quality surround sound?

Re: Best new tv

I doubt the make and model TV is going to make much, if any, difference in sound quality with your Bose.  I have an LG 65C7P OLED that I purchased a few years ago that I like very much.  I have never had any problems with it working well with my Bose using HDMI ARC.  My next TV will be another LG.

Optical cable and HDMI is the same quality sound output. The only disadvantage using HDMI, is lost one input to use other equipment like DVD player.

That's not correct.  I believe CEC and maybe some other controls work over HDMI ARC but not optical.  However, that was not the OP's question.
