I didn't realize that Analog Devices currently marks the SSM2164 as "obsolete."

THAT Corp still makes their THAT2162, if you want better specs rather than worse.

I have some of their other cloney chips, but haven't actually gotten around to trying to apply them (e.g. the BBDs, the companders).  The BBDs are definitely low-voltage versions though, the data sheet for the V3205 says 5V operation.....  So you lose headroom....
