You might have a hard time going from chip model to ADC unit. Looking
at units, looking at the teardowns, might be one way to find out the
chip, then look it up. However, that still doesn't say anything about
the analog front-end, which could well mess with frequencies above
22k.

Probably best to look at the ADCs datasheets from AKM, Cirrus and Analog Devices and find an ADC that does what you want, then look for units that use that device.

Now they are wanting to do similar up to around 80kHz so I'm looking for an external audio interface capable of sampling at 192kHz with an analogue bandwidth out to around 80kHz.

So, I know it is possible, but wanted to avoid buying lots of audio interfaces and testing them to see which are good to 80kHz!
