Yes, 690R is the top contender to replace the 990R once I decide that question. Spent the morning fighting with computers and computer tools. It is supposed to begin raining soon. My fun with doors errand yesterday has left my back complaining. So, I sit, sip coffee and read. I gave up on the computer issue. I will fix it by replacing the streaming device with a better streaming device. Yesterday we also looked at new hearing aids. I have an appointment. I'm standing there at the counter the tech has my devices and has been replacing some parts. I can't hear any of the three women, my wife included in a loud Costco store with all three of them standing within three feet of me. I put the devices back in my ears and can now hear all three. The two tech's had not seen any hearing aids like mine in years. They looked up my file and they're only 8 years old. Not exactly vintage. Now the new rage are fully in the ear with rechargeable batteries. And of course a smartphone app. If my back feels better later I'm going down to the shop and put the bike stand up and get some work done.
