PS Audio Perfect Wave Transport/DAC experiences
You're correct that the PWD doesn't ship with an SD card since it is not required for use. The PWT uses it to store album art when connected to the internet, so it ships with one. You can use any standard SD card that is 2GB or less, according to ... 
HRS Isolation Voodoo, anyone experienced this?
One logical explanation may be that the HRS was damping or modifying some resonance in your rack that affects the CD player's performance even though it's on a different shelf.

I certainly cannot dispute Chashas1's experience, but the arm design has some level of AS force present even at its minimal setting when setup as the manufacturer recommends. Since the arm doesn't have a cueing platform to hold the arm's position ...

rega rb300 tonearm lift not working - fixable
Try lowering the lever just past the vertical position and letting it drop on its own with the platform and arm. This usually works; please give it a try and let us know if it resolves your problem. If not the mechanism may need to be replaced or ... 
tonearm mass/cartridge mismatch
The relative weight of the tonearm and cartridge is not the determining factor in resonance. The resulting resonant frequency is determined by the combined effective mass of the arm and cartridge along with the compliance of the cartridge.
