KD-34XBR970 (Superfine Tube)

I sent Sony an e-mail yesterday and just received this reply:

Thank you for contacting Sony Direct Customer Care.

In regard to your question, the KD-34XBR970 still has the Superfine Pitch of the previous models.

Thank you for choosing Sony Style!

"There have been several falsehoods claiming the 34XBR970 is the replacement for the 34XBR960(N). I think it is clear by what is posted on Sony's website that actually it is a direct replacement for the 34HS420N as as been stated by several people.

I seriously doubt the XBR970 has a Super Fine Pitch tube.

There is no SuperFine Pitch tube on the 970. The specs (and the operating manual) aren't lying. I would bet that the SFP is a thing of the past, now that all American CRT tubes are out of production.

Why do you keep trotting out this specious argument? It's at least the second time you've done it, and you've been shot down both times by logic and reasoning.

What's your agenda? I don't get it.
