I was at the office today and saw that it is indeed AVR Sonovation.  The
joint venture is called Unicom.  The first model will fit the US80, but
they are developing the boot for the smaller size BTE's (ie. ICON series).

I know that there are some lurchers from Unitron out there.  Please don't
feel afraid to chime in on this.  Just don't post an advertisement or slam
another product that is out on the market.  People want to hear what folks
at Unitron have to say about this product.
