Not too many people change their base model jvc every year. I can understand more on the high end models. For instance, RS25, then upgrade to 50 for 3D, then upgrade to 55 for eshift, then upgrade to 56 for auto cal and new bulb design, now the 57 is rumored to have even more features such as 4K signal, new eshift, hopefully new auto cal, new chip, and dynamic contrast. We still will have to wait 5 weeks to fully find out. If it does take a 4K signal, all the other 4k downloadable and streaming devices will hopefully work with the jvc and the projector will do its best to replicate most of the 4K resolution and color.
Its most likely a good amount cheaper than a native 4k projector from jvc next year, which will put the second cycle of jvc 4k projectors coming out late 2015 at $10K. By that time we can make a decision depending on content if its ready to dump our rs57 and 67s. At least that's what I'm thinking and hoping.
