I am about to get my first hearing aid having lost hearing in one ear in 1969. I don't like to rush into things. I have visited three clinics and their recommendations have been either Phonak BiCros or Resound Linx2 with a Multi Mic. Thoughts?

Two different solutions. To give you a direct and quick answer: my preferred choice for unilateral profound losses would be Phonak Bi-CROS. 

Most clinics would offer you a trial period allowing you the opportunity to trial both then you choose what suits your loss, life style and personal preference better.

There is also the Starkey Muse CROS/BiCROS system, which has the capability of streaming the TV thru a media device and streaming other accessories. Which device is best for you? This is determined by the amount of hearing loss in your "good" ear, as well as your lifestyle and your communication needs.
