The PS Audio Quintet is an excellent entry level product,but the Shunyata Hydra series is a whole other level, and would be a significant improvement over the quintet in every way.

I don't think the Hydra is over the Quintet. Just that the Plus SC power cord is NOT a very good cord. You need the Statement SC to bring out the best of the Quintet.
You need to make a fair comparison between power cords. I think the Python Helix Alpha is way more expansive than the Plus SC, more than double?
I changed from the hydra 2 to the 4 and the differance was Quite substantial.Someone took the veil off my system,Not to take away from psquintet but i think rcrerar got it right.The hydra two i believe is evey bit the quintet and more acording to reveiws.Leave it up to your own ears,But for my experience the two isnt even close...imho.(stick with shunyata cable).
