Being completely new and looking to purchase a new TV for my basement to be used with playbar, sub, and two rear play 1's for surround sound, Will this tv allow me to enjoy the surround sound setup?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The main issue is that you, probably, have external (to the TV) video sources and you need to ensure the TV will pass through Dolby Digital 5.1 from an HDMI input to the optical audio out.

I couldn't find out if that TV does pass through. Often what happens is the TV only passes stereo which is nowhere near as good as the DD 5.1

Usually the TV tuner itself and the on board apps WILL pass DD5.1
