Thanks DNJ! First, Both sound great and nearly identical. Could an audience tell the difference? I doubt it. From my perspective, XXX sounded a bit better overall so I would imagine that would be the 970....if I were a 950 owner I would still be very happy to stick with it...

I think YYYY sounded best. Not so much reverb, sounded more live. Not enough difference to worry about though.

Don - thanks so much for the kind words on my music. I have learned a ton of great things from the guys and gals on this forum (yourself included for certain)! I do love music and I do hope it shows in my music. So thanks again!

Wow... Amazing how "ears" hear things. I actually thought XXX was a bit louder. In terms of differences, they were definitely too close to make much difference and certainly none would be noticeable to the audience... Both 950 and 970 are great - - even my S910 was a terrific keyboard. Having said that, I look forward to upgrading to S970 and will be elated when it arrives. (Thanks again FRANK!)

And thanks again Don for the kind words on my web music!
