Instal a good clock, ie Tentlabs XO3 with improved spidf output and XO-supply, and you'll have a killer transport.
I have done many Teacs now and they have an exceptional improvment brought to them by doing this.

Cheers George

Hi George, thanks for feedback.

BTW, I am quite happy with Guido’s DIY Tubed DAC that I am using with VRDS-20. Tentlabs XO3/XO PSU is well worth and definitely on my list. But before that I am looking around and researching for some other tweaks that I would like to do first:
- separate power supplies for all servos not sure how to do proper optimize
decoupling ?
- separate toroids for each PSU may be well worth
- replace all elcos etc. (with BG or so) in PSUs and servo Board
- mech. Dumping
- spindle motor servo optimization (not sure how it could be done)

Guido has all the mod info for these transports, as he uses a vrds10 he's modded and it's similar to the 20, maybe he will share the mods he's done if sees this thread you beg a little.

Cheers George

Wanted to start with adding new separate supplies for all servos. There are 3 servos in total. (Correct me if I am wrong).

Guido and others DIY fellas, anybody did these mods? What are the power supplies that should be added for VRDS-20?
