Kontsevich and Soibelman defined Donaldson-Thomas invariants of a 3d Calabi-Yau category equipped with a stability condition. Any cluster variety gives rise to a family of such categories. Their DT invariants are encapsulated in a single formal automorphism of the cluster variety, called the DT-transformation.

Let S be an oriented surface with punctures, and a finite number of special points on the boundary considered modulo isotopy. It give rise to a moduli space X(m, S), closely related to the moduli space of PGL(m)-local systems on S, which carries a canonical cluster Poisson variety structure. For each puncture of S, there is a birational Weyl group action on the space X(m, S). 
We calculate the DT-transformation of the moduli space X(m,S), with few exceptions. 

We discuss the relationship between DT-transformations and duality conjectures in general.

In particular, our main result, combined with the work of Gross, Hacking, Keel and Kontsevich,
gives rise to a canonical basis in the space of regular functions on the cluster variety X(m,S), and in the upper cluster algebra with principal coefficients related to the pair (SL(m), S).
