AD makes a series of "Infinite S&H" and multichannel DAC chips (16, 32 
and 40 channels with a variety of output ranges 10, 12 and 14bit 
precision, with and without offset and gain error correction - AD55xx) 
that can be controlled via SPI.  About the only downside is the need to 
deal with fine-pitch BGA packages that makes a four-layer board
