Does the Bose Soundbar 700 directly benefit now from having a TV that has eARC? Or would that just be me futureproofing? Thinking about getting the LG C8 which doesnt support eARC. The LG C9 comes out in April and would like to know if its worth the extra cash just to have eARC? Thanks!
Thanks for your question. The Soundbar 700 already supports eARC, so it's worth upgrading if you use any sources that offer high bitrate and uncompressed audio. How do you usually watch movies? Do you have a Blu-Ray player? If so, it's worth checking the make and model to find out whether it's compatible. Also, do you use any streaming services?
Please let us know, and we'll do our best to help.

I just bought LG C9P few days. We know EARC is good for uncompressed audio(Dobly Atmos, DTS X). but soundbar 700 just support Dolby Digital, DTS?
Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.
You are correct. This Soundbar 700 supports Dolby Digital and DTS.
Thanks for the question! eARC stands for Enhanced Audio Return Channel. It is the next generation of ARC and is faster and has more bandwidth and speed from my understanding.
Hope this helps.
I'm sorry but I do not understand what you mean by "You meaning is highway for bubble car?"
Could you please explain so that the relevant support can be provided.
EARC alway for Next-Gen audio coding (DOBLY ATOMS, DTS-X). Dobly audio and DTS is very old audio coding.
Many of Stream Media, like Nexfilx HUGO.... didn't support this audio coding.
Hope sb700 support Next-Gen audio coding (DOBLY ATOMS, DTS-X) , even if support Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD .
