Is the Phonak PICS multi-channel? I'm not that familiar with it.

Was the Ensoniq multi-channel or was it single channel with multiple tone 

What is the current thinking about the need for compression in the high 
frequencies? I believe that Oticon has compression only in the low-frequency 
channel. Going along with this idea, when we fit high-frequency ski-slope 
hearing losses, would linear be the preferred choice? Or is there some value 
from putting compression circuitry in the high-frequency channel such as 
some of the other manufacturers do?
