I'd say relax. I don't even have a 4K display yet and still sporting a measely
5.1 surround. There is little to no content in 4K that personally interests me so I have no compelling reason to spend big money on an upgrade that will provide little enjoyment. The only thing that even registers on my radar of irks is the plasma panel buzzing that I've lived with for so long and the fact that I'd like a bigger display (75"+, projector impractical in this room). I was never an early adopter of cutting edge technologies anyway. Even if you had HDMI 2.1 everything today, what content would you watch? How would your life be dramatically improved? Very little excites me nowaways. Maybe its just my jaded outlook on life at this point.
I'd seriously find something to occupy my mind and not let the finer things in life slip by. Even when HDMI 2.1 becomes available I'm sure we'll all hear about the next great must have technology just around the corner. It will never end. Technology will always advance and new products will be available to buy every year.
I have a pair of monoblocks I got weeks ago, and an Oppo 205 I just got, that I still haven't unboxed yet. I know I'll eventually get to them, as soon as I take care of a few other more pressing things, but I sleep just fine knowing that tomorrow is another day. I don't know. Maybe I'm on a different wavelength.
