A few number of people buy the Oppo in general. They added 7.1 to the 103, if they didn't, they could bring the cost down also. So, why would they not try to add Atmos to it? They added the darbee to the 103 and 105. I'm sure if they can make a profit, they will try. You can pick up a BD player for less than $100 but that has not stopped Oppo from putting out a $1300 BD player. I think when anyone say why would they incorporate something that so few people use to a product like the Oppo is a little silly. Its a very expensive player that a limited number a people buy anyways. I definitely would not be surprised if they added Atmos or Auro 3D to it. I would not be surprised if they didn't. Adding $200-$300 to the cost of the player is not going to hurt them.

I see your point. It may be $200 to $300 for Atmos. But it also depends on their priorities and what else they'd add to the upcoming one. Everything they add to it, will increase the cost. But again as you said, they may do it.

Since the bulk of my wants for the next Oppo are streaming related, I'd be fine if Oppo released a very high end streaming device like a Roku maybe more like a asus chromebox but with extremely high end components for top notch audio processing. I might even stop getting their BR players if they offered a high end streaming device as I just rip all my new discs to my PC so I don't have to get the disc out to use it and so I always have a backup.

I ripped all my CDs and saved them to a 1 TB laptop. I use wireless HDMI to my AVR (Denon 3808) and I also use a visualization software (soundspectrum Aeon / G-Force) on the laptop. The laptop transfers PCM/Visualization to the AVR through wireless HDMI (Nyrius pro) and then the AVR uses AL24 to upsample the 16 bit CD quality to 24 bit. The audio quality is nice (can be better using a better pre/pro) and the picture looks great.
I wanted to take the streaming route, but the easiest way for me to transfer CD audio and visualization together was with wireless HDMI.

The only thing that I don't like about my setup is that my laptop cannot play SACD. I have to play the physical disk (SACD) in Oppo. As a result, I cannot play visualization with it, but it is minor to me since I do not have many SACDs.

I don't know if that works for you, but just a suggestion.
