Not to worry. Just stay with soundbars from Panny, Sony, Samsung, LG. They will all work fine with the Panny TV.
Also, when I buy a BD player, do I need a seperate cable to the soundbar from the BR?
Yes. For BR you will get best sound quality by connecting the player via HDMI directly to a soundbar. So you should select a bar that has HDMI input(s). You will need an HDMI cable to connect player and bar, and another cable to connect bar and TV.
Last--this will be sitting on a table in front of the TV. Do I need to worry about remote interference?
Yes. One advantage of the Panny soundbar is that you can split it into two separate vertical speakers rather than one horizontal one. With other bars, you'll likely need to find a way to raise your TV or look into an IR blaster.
