Which "signal-chain" setup is likely to return the strongest/best quality signal for a 4 user system?

1) Quad LNB => High isolation DiSEqC 4/1 switch => Spaun SUR 420 WSG DiSEqC 1.1 uncommitted switch => receiver :confused
or
2) Quattro LNB => Multiswitch => Spaun SUR 420 WSG DiSEqC 1.1 uncommitted switch => receiver :confused

I could go either way in order to receive Badr 4 at 26E but would like to know if any of You have experiensed a difference between 1 and 2 above?

3) Which Quad or Quattro do You recommend? :confused

I live at the edge of the reception footprint with about 43 dBW from Badr 4 according to LyngSat.

Kind regards,
satcat :)

I know that of course, but as You can see on my balcony it's hard to fit larger dishes so I'm hunting for infos in the other end.

Sadly very few tests on neither Quad nor Quattro LNBs exist and especially I didn't find any tests "Quad versus Quattro from the same brand".

So far this Question remains unanswered:
Which combination from the same brand LNB passes a higher gain/better Quality signal on to the receiver from the LNB? (compare 1st post above)

1) A Quad LNB (with it's factory inbuilt Universal switch)?

or

2) A Quattro LNB with an external Multiswitch (in order to acheive Universal switching)?
