Yes, the screen is smaller (even moved much closer to the LP), but the way the colors pop on the OLED and the clarity make it appear as though I’m looking through a window. One of the things that promoted my decision was a YouTube video by Andrew Robinson, proclaiming front projection effectively dead with the advent of HDR. At first I was dismissive of his views, but found myself giving it more thought. I now believe panels are the future of Home Theater. LG is introducing an 88” 8 k OLED, and once that becomes affordable, I think it’d be tough for front projection to compete.
Please understand I’ve invested hours and thousands in this technology (including a ChadB calibration, and hours of research (including this thread), and for me, it was the right move. I mention it here in case anyone is considering the purchase of another projector to present another side of the current state of the art in display technology and present a possible alternative.
It's all a matter of what has the most impact on your personal watching of the content you enjoy. If one is after the absolute best implementation of HDR, then an OLED is going to be your best choice, at the expense of limited display size. If total immersion is more important to a person, and is willing to sacrifice some of the visual impact of OLED, then a Projector is the best choice.
I have a 75" Sony XBR900E in my family room (not quite your 77" set, and with picture quality not quite that of an OLED), and HDR is awesome. But if I'm going to watch a movie, especially a scope aspect ratio one, then I'm heading into my theater room to view it on a 160" diagonal scope screen, with my JVC RS400. I am aware that the visual impact isn't quite the same in terms of contrast, highlights, dynamic image, etc., but for me, that trade-off is acceptable.
The vastly superior sound system in my theater room also contributes to the more immersive experience, but the screen size, for me, makes me feel like I have a regular movie theater in my home.
But I fully understand how others would choose differently. One isn't right, one isn't wrong. Enjoy your OLED!
