I have my LG OLED55E7P connected to my Sonos Playbase via the typical optical connection. Connected to my TV is my Android streaming device, that also has an optical connection. The Android streaming device is connected to the TV via HDMI.
My streaming device is a Minix U9H Android device: http://www.minix.us/products/NEO-U9-H.html. This support full Dolby, DTS, Dolby Atmos, HDR10, 4K. Would it be advisable to move the optical connection from the TV to the streaming device? All my live and recorded content is streamed from this device.

You should be OK (albeit with a few caveats) as the Playbase is not particular from where the Audio stream originates as long as it's optical. Without researching your LG you'd have to somehow silence it's built-in speakers without having an on screen message appear. The remote used with the Minix U9H Android device must be compatible with the Playbase to control volume. From the picture it appears to be BT? There are several links here on using a non-IR remote with the Playbase: https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/list/kw/bluetooth%20remote
