I stumbled upon the LM1036 volume/tone/balance control, and I found it as the ideal IC to use in order to improve my multimedia active speakers project. The problem is that I con't find the chip in Portugal?

Where can I order it? Is there any replacement?

I don't understand how such an useful chip can't be found in Lisbon.

Thanks, I will try this. Just contacted with my local supplier, and althoung not having it, they say they can get one for about 4.18 Eur, which is a robbery.

I believe that device has already been discontinued by National Semi.

Just checked the site and it seems that this chip is under full production. It is the only audio control circuit they have. I really hope that it is not discontinued.
