I've stayed at both (but it's been a few years). They are both excellent, but the Imperial is, well, a little more "Imperial"; more elegant, more refined, and more formal; I would say it is a half a...

I did not like the Platzl at all. I had a bad room and an unpleasant stay. The Charles is excellent, and is in a different league (and generally priced accordingly).

True. More torque in the lower rpm range. In the higher rpms, and at higher speeds it is different story. The 640 is, imho, faster than its numbers would indicate.

Thanks. I am aware of the scroll function; it is not exactly the same function, particularly in random play.

I agree about keeping Surround off. I would be interested in seeing your eq settings.
