Here is another Smartlink question that has to do with the new Phonak Exelias and iCom recently released.
One of the weakness with the Smartlink is when using a mp3 player or Television, the unit transmits a combined left/right speaker fm signal to all receivers (as I understand it) so the stereo affect disappears.
As stated earlier, Phonak Exelias are now out with an iCom and a myPilot. The iCom claims to stream signals in stereo to the new Exelia hearing aids.
I saw a sketch or picture somewhere where a small FM receiver connects to the bottom of the iCom so that Smartlink transmitter users can use the new iCom.
My question is this… Will the iCom be able to convert the incoming smartlink signal back into stereo mode? I’m guessing it can not. If this is the case, then only way for the iCom to transmit true stereo sound to the Excelias would be a direct wired connection from the TV/MP3 player to the iCom?
