No, don't leave them for another year Balconynovice.
bear in mind acers hate strong afternoon sunshine, cold winds and draughts when positioning your acers
check the roots on your acers and tease them out a little. Choose a pot a couple of sizes larger. Use john innes compost.....although acid soil is not essential I would go,for a john innes ericaceous soil. Water in well.
I would be inclined too to fleece them this first winter
