In the room you are describing then in all honestly if you can afford the difference over the Epson the JVC is the only option. The NX5 has dynamic tonal mapping, something neither the Epson or the Sony have and this is a seriously big deal if you want to get the best from HDR.
Now you could get even better HDR by using the Epson with MadVR but then you’ll have had to build a PC to run it and you’ll have added about $800-1000 to the Epson’s total cost which will be getting mighty close to that of the JVC.
One thing I will add is I did a comparison between my Epson and a mate’s Sony 360es and frankly there was nothing to chose between them, from my 9.5ft viewing to the 100” screen the Epson looked as crisp and even the blacks were about the same. Where the Epson killed the Sony was HDR because of its superior brightness, in fact after the lengthy session the Sony owner said he wished he had bought the Epson and saved himself a packet. So frankly I think unless you are willing to spend big on one of the dearer Sony models your sole option is the NX5.
