Might be so that the DR is unchanged from Merrill. The better shadows might only be because Quattro expose further to the right.

Well, that's exactly what i mentioned already in my first post

To test this you can set both M and Q at ISO 100 and then take a series of exposures manually, starting from under exposed and stopping at over exposed.

And then evaluate the result.

From that evaluation you can find the relative sensitivity of the two sensors and also the relative dynamic range.

To get absolute values is harder as you then have to make more thorough measurements using some standardised method.
