INFERIOR CRT, SECOND RATE soundworks, no CABLECard.
The 960 was a very premium CRT-HDTV, see C-NET's review; the 970 is basically assembled from overstock of SONY's HS 34" parts an entry level model (KD-34HS420.)
On the bright side, the 970 has been tweaked-up from the HS, costs about $899 at retail stores, is the last 16:9 34" CRT being mass produced (SONY still makes a 36" 4:3 model, the KD-36FS170.) Probably the best feature of the 970 is the warranty, 2 years parts and labor, 2 years on the CRTube.
There is another model to search for on the net. SONY KD-34XS955, almost the same as the 960 minus some frills. Good hunting about,
