Bose Soundbar 700 HDMI info

Hi, I don't know if this is the right category to ask, if not I apologize in advance.

 

I'm potentially interested in buying a Bose Soundbar 700 but I read it can only be connected to the TV with HDMI ARC/eARC but I have a doubt.

I own a Sony UBP-X800M2 ultraHD bluray player that has an HDMI audio only out to split video from audio (HDMI 1 is both, HDMI 2 only audio) for best quality. Now HDMI 1 goes to TV for video and HDMI 2 goes to the HDMI-in of my current soundbar (an old Samsung HW-MS650).

Now, If I connect the HDMI 2 audio only out of the player to the HDMI of the Bose, will it be able to reproduce audio ? Like my current setup. I ask that considering Sony HDMI 2 is only audio, so it kinda like an ARC and considering I don't want to pass through TV like suggested because LG CX Oled series don't support DTS anymore but Bose do. Thanks so much !
