At which point the added functionality was a free upgrade to the player you already owned. Take a deep breath and repeat that. Free.
You want more? Fine. No problem. It might even happen. OPPO has repeatedly surprised us with new functionality we didn't think was in the cards. But your implication that you are ENTITLED to more simply because OPPO added THIS much to the player is simply bizarre.
Heck, you could own a BDP-83 or 93 or 95 and not have even THIS level of DSD media files support, nor any chance of getting it.
Are you suggesting OPPO shouldn't have released the current level of DSD support because it didn't also include the extra parts you want?
Suppose the answer is that the extra stuff you want will NEVER be added to the 103/105/103D generation of players. Now what? For the sake of argument, let's even conjecture it IS a solvable engineering problem; would adding it make these better players? Better enough that they might now be called a 113 or 115?
For the longest time the 93 and 95 didn't have DVD 24p Conversion because OPPO couldn't find a way to make it work well enough. When the 103/105 were being worked on, OPPO FOUND a way -- and then retrofitted that BACK into the 93/95. For Free. Could the same thing happen here? Will OPPO's other priorities preclude them from doing additional work on DSD until the next generation of players? I certainly don't know.
But one thing you can be pretty sure of, OPPO won't say it's coming until they have high confidence they can deliver it. Until that point, all you'll get is variations on the theme, "We don't know how to do it yet".
By the way, what part of the DLNA Certification spec requires the player to support DSD?
