    Default New Rexton model at Costco?

    Was at Costco today and looking at brochures. It looks like the Trax 42 has been replaced with a TrueCore model. It looks like it is available in a BTE and some sort of in the ear aid. There was a model name but it escapes me now. My take was that there was no longer a RIC aid which makes sense as that is the KS7.

    Was back at Costco today. It's called the Legato. Comes in BTE and custom. A CIC is available in custom. Seems to be same as KS7 except available in BTE and custom.

    How is it different from KS7, I wonder. Why would they create a different line

    When the KS6 was the KS aid, Resound aids were the same (Lynx) platform but made available the BTE and canal aids. It is likely that this deal is part of the private label agreement.

    KS7 is only available in RIC. From what I can tell, the Rexton Legato is available in BTE (but not RIC) and some sort of in the ear aid. Pure speculation, but I'm guessing like to keep the KS7 simple with no BTE or in the ear and they wanted to keep the Rexton line going with those other options. They both use TruCore (sp?) technology.

    My Costco audi told me that KS-7s are coming out in a variety of other formats.
