If I use my Sony A9G’s app via ARC, I get Dolby Digital Plus, but only Dolby Digital using the x700. But I prefer the x700, because I get occasional one second audio dropouts using ARC on the TV.
2 - I do not have the Ultra HD Netflix yet, only 1080p. But if a title has Dolby Vision, will the x700 recognize it, or do I need to turn on the DV feature in the settings beforehand? Or will it recognize it at all?

Not sure about Question 2, but Question 1, the answer is that Dolby Digital 5.1 is the best sound you can get at the moment. Netflix is very slow about updating their apps for Atmos sound, and so far have only released it on these devices:
Apple TV 4K (requires tvOS 12 or later)
LG OLED TVs (2017 or newer models)
Panasonic TVs (2019 or newer models)
Pixela 4K Smart Tuner (only available in Japan... Nice move, Netflix!)
Sony BRAVIA Android TVs (2018 or newer models)
Toshiba TVs (2019 or newer models)
Verizon Fios IPC2.0 and VMS2.0
Vizio TVs (2018 or newer models)
Windows 10 computer or tablet (requires Windows 10 RS3 Build 16299 or later)
Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X
