I directly compared my Monster strip to a PS Audio Quintet in my system, and I did not like what the Quintet did to the sound, either. Greatly reduced dynamics and soundstage, and instrumental timbres were not resolved nearly as well. The Monster stayed in my system. I would probably just plug in to the wall if it weren't for the fact that I live in an area that experiences bad thunderstorms, so I want the surge protection.
