It is good idea to consider docking bay. There are too many cables now that are tangled and messy. Bay may help. Dune is good at connecting with any usb hub, but not oppo 93. Appreciate if you can share the model information about usb hub and bay that works with both of them. I like to have as more ports (12 port if possible) as possible.
I'm currently using a couple of Thermaltake 2-bay docks with no issues. They also are the same width as the Smart H1/B/D units, and so they can sit on top nicely. The 4-bay docks are pricey, it's often cheaper to get 2 2-bay docks. All of the docks have their pluses and minuses but functionally they are all the same except for the interface types. USB is a bit more useful than eSATA, most have both.
Any powered USB-2 hub should work OK, just be sure it's rated USB-2. I use a Belkin. There's a lot of hubs still being sold that are not rated USB-2.
If you really need up to 12 drives, a NAS or network storage of some kind might simplify things for you. Only difference is that network transfers to and from the Dune are snail-slow, but for watching movies it's fine.
