No disrespect intended. Just trying to convey that this was a serious endeavor and that it would take a significant time commitment.

OK, I am not technologically challenged,40+ years as an EE, CE, and ME. But I am OLD, 80, so much of my data base is OLD....LOL
I bought the Resound Linx2 962s, a pair of them, programed before delivery, advertised as NEW, with a remote. Will get them in a week. Much less than the Audiologist wanted. I feel bad because I felt I owed her some loyalty after she worked with me and showed me what I needed, but $6000 is an awful lot of loyalty. (the price she quoted, $5000, was for the 761s, for the 961s she wanted $6700)
He asked how he could go wrong not how it could go right.
And not knowing basics like the aids were digital(see his other thread) is not a good sign for self-programming success.

Wrong, right? What the hell is the difference in context of the OP?
He knows they are digital now. Without dropping $6000 to $7000.
Let him come back later and tell us whether it was successful or not.
No need to Pooh, Pooh his decision this early. Unless you are biased.
Some of my past EBay buying...
I agree, you made a good choice. I myself inquire about going back to my audiologist for programming if I had any issues (backup plan). They agreed, but would charge me an expensive "office programming fee". Anyway, long story short, after two weeks with self programming, I don't think I'll ever go back to an audiologist for programming, as I feel I have so much more control. Jimisbell, with your tech background, you should have no issues.
