Sony HT-CT780 v 5.1 Sony BDV-N790

As part of my 4K package deal I got a Sony HT-CT780 Soundbar

I already own a Sony 5.1 System with Wireless Rear Speakers, the BDV-N790. It's around 2 years old. It is 3D but not 4K up scaling ( although what is a 4K upscaling system when the TV would upscale the picture anyway ? )

On the face of things 5.1 is better than a 2.1 Soundbar and listening to a good Blu Ray or Blu Ray Audio is a nice experience. However, the Soundbar has Various features the 5.1 does not have, including 4K pass through ( not sure what that is ) Bluetooth, NFC etc.

My question I limiting my new TV by plugging in the old Tech. Aside from the fewer speakers is the more modern Soundbar a better match to my 4K TV or will the older system be good for years to come ?

Any views most welcome
