I had similar issue ones with not enough space between cupboard and TV, so could no fit SAT-receiver in the gap. TV was fixed on the wall. So, I just shortened legs of the cup-board some 5sm and it worked well.

Another idea - move the TV towards the front of the stand and put the sound bar behind the TV. A zero cost alternative.

I would make a wooden stand-off for the telly to begin with. Then consider splashing out on wall mounts etc.

Make it from two pieces of 4 cm table-wood.
From the kitchen I installed in my (UK) house in 2007, I still have a piece leftover of the kitchen-top.
Solid Oak, made from glued-together sticks.
If you don't have it, go scavening at the local lumber-people.

Saw out two pieces that accomodates the footprint of the TV.
Screw them together (love typing that), sand down and oil them up (prerty good typing that too), and put rubber feet on the bottom one.
Put under tv, and elevate 8 cm...

Easy, removable, non-invasive, looks good, ...

This one is easy, get several piece's of plywood cut to the size of the TV's footing and as thick as you need to lift it up to where you want it, and them laminate them together, next you use some iron on edge banding to cover up the edges of the plywood that will be showing, stain it to match the wood stand its on and your done.
