pioneer vsx-823 4k on a recent 4k Oled TV. Time to upgrade?

I'm getting a new 4K tv today (Sony A8H OLED) The receiver i have is the Pioneer vsx-823 from 2013. I know it does 4k pass through but being such a new model I'm starting to worry it won't be able to handle new 4k content as I'm also getting PS5.

The receiver is working fine but now am just making sure it can handle my new hardware. I was thinking a temp solution would be just use Optical Digital audio out?

I'd think it should be fine. But being from 2013 it may not pass through HDR or Dolby Vision. And likely pre-dates Dolby Atmos. I'd avoid Optical out as it reduces the sound quality to compressed DD 5.1 (if not 2.0).
