I may be mistaken, but those OPPO problems seem to occur if you use the analog audio outputs with bass management being internal to the Oppo.

That's what I thought. PCM does not allow you to properly decode the Atmos sound track, so why would you set your player to PCM if you own an Atmos disk and an Atmos sound system?
