I personally don't think streaming 4K is going to be a big improvement to invest in a $3k projector over what you have. If you were playing UHD Blu-Ray maybe it would be more of an upgrade. The Epson is still a 1080p projector with a 2x shift so only half 4k resolution. It will be brighter and sharper then your Sony with about the same contrast so that alone may make it more appealing. If you don't need the power lens memory its of no value to you. A JVC or Sony 4K would be the next big step but also more $.
Edit: Going from LCOS to LCD may be a down grade as the pixel fill (screen door effect) is much worse on LCD but the 2x shift helps a lot.
