Default Technics CD player mods?

Hi, new to the forum but looking for some good advice. I have a Technics SLPG590 which I have had from new. It's feeding a Creek CAS 4140S2 and MS Festival 2 speakers. Fairly vintage stuff. I have recently bought a Beresford Caiman DAC and feed that via the optical out on the Technics which I have to say gets the feet tapping!

Being the perfectionist on a budget, I COULD buy a second hand Sony or Pioneer in the 100 market for their supposedly superior transports to feed the Caiman.
Or, would it be worth spending the equivalent on mods for the Technics?

I used to run an electronics factory making high end HMI's so know nothing (seriously!) about electronics design but have a friend who was a technician there who does and can solder!

My question(s) are:

say for my 100 is it worth modding the Technics?
what about a separate PSU? Is there a design for one we can make?
The transport section - is there any of the caps etc that need upgrading?

Let the theories flow!

Many thanks, Lol
