Also curious what projector you'd recommend that that would meet future proofing and good contrast goals. It seems like the Sony and JVC projectors are having problems right now.
I think all the native 4K projectors are on equal footing when it comes to future proofing right now. I think the 295ES is max 1500 lumens and about 1000 lumens low lamp so you're going to want it on a screen up to maybe 120" perhaps smaller. I think the N5 is a better deal as it adds the dynamic iris and with it the dynamic contrast as well as 300 lumens more light output.
