Oh, they mean something- just a matter of slicing it the way you want .

For example- the 950A/S has been on sale since 2003, and the SE only since 2006 (iirc). So maybe a fairer comparison is the 990 A/S. Which is almost 2:1. Or compared to S models of all types 1:1.

One thing that I find interesting is that the A to S ratio is reasonably consistent between the 950 and 990.

I'm also a little surprised that there only seem to be 8 or less (if anyone has 3) folks who own more than 1 9XX.
