I can't say what the specific benefits of modding the unit would be. If it elevates its performance up to a SCD-555es level, might be worth it. However, before you do anything, suggest you try a "forgiving" interconnect such as MIT if you have not done so already. I have tried an MSB link dac and it is not where I would go if I wanted relief from digital fatigue. The smoothest dac at a cheap price that I have heard is the Micromega. Needs a good transport and cables to sound its best. The Sony you have only has toslink out, so you would need a jitter reduction device to connect by coaxial cable to Micromega.
