I currently have a PD-65 feeding through a Genesis Lens and into a Classe' SSP-50 (DAC/PRE) via Illuminations D60. The only mods I've done were an ac line balancer (Cinepro PowerPro30) and a set of Symposium Rollerblocks. I couldn't be happier with the system. The PowerPro made a small difference (my entire front end is plugged into it) and the RollerBlocks made a more noticeable improvement. I've thought about hardwiring a Synergistics Master Coupler to the transport which would be far better than making it detachable but the transport sounds so great now, I don't think its worth my time or money. The RollerBlocks, to my surprise, made a larger improvement in my system than any powercord (Synergistics Ref. M.C. and standard Master Coupler on Lens, pre, and amps). The PD-65 is a phenomenal transport at any price. I tried it as a joke when I was setting up my "ultimate sound system" but found I liked it better than the other <$3K transports I was looking at. Give the Rollerblocks a shot and if you make any other modifications that make a noticeable improvement, let us know. Good luck.
