AMP with LG TV, BluRay and Soundbar

I currently have a Denon Receiver with floor-speakers connected to my SONOS system via ZP80.  Add to that an LG OLED55B7 with an LG 2.1 Soundbar and LG UltraHD BluRay UBK90.  The TV is further connected to a Playstation.

The BluRay serves as a CD-player when needed. I may add a turntable to the system in the near future.

I am contemplating replacing the Receiver/ZP80 with a SONOS:AMP but I’m concerned that

  1. there are too few connectors on the AMP to service this e.g. I can’t use the BluRay as a CD player unless I turn the TV on as well.
  2. the TV’s ARC HDMI is noted by LG as only supporting LG Audio.

There were known time-lag problems  with LG OLED TVs and the SONOS soundbars which is why I went with an LG soundbar.

Is my analysis correct?

Also is the AMP forever tied to having to work in SONOS report-to-base mode?
