Welcome to our community. As far as I can tell, this soundbar should be compatible with your TV. What specific concerns did you have?

You certainly selected an amazing TV. I was just over at a Magnolia store near my office during lunch and looked at one of the new Sony OLED TV's
Is your concern regarding the HDMI Arc coming out of your TV and the sound bar being HDMI eArc?
eArc is the newest format for communication between the TV and devices. eArc is 100% backwards compatible with your TV set. This is in preperation for the new HDMI 2.1 format.
There is supposed to be a firmware upate available for the A8F to eArc which you may be able to get from your TV interface. If you cannot find it I would suggest contacting Sony directly.
eArc is essentialy a method of providing uncompressed audio to your audio device from the TV. I have read that standard arc is 1 Mbps and eArc is 38 Mbps
The update may not be availble yet.

You should check your updates on your TV occasionally to see if the eArc is available or it may alert you automatically
I would appreciate a re-post when you find out details about it as I am considering the same TV or A9F
