A digitally controlled volume control solution
Perhaps, it is worth being looked at http://yooree.narod.ru/digitera.html what I found recently.
Haven't tried yet, but looks promising. Any thoughts?
In case you're interested, here are some sources for more information about using digital potentiometers:
Some interesting points about using digital pots for audio attenuators are covered in Application Note 161 (related to the DS1802), at http://www.maxim-ic.com . You might also be interested in some of their other digital pot appnotes, such as 864, 803, and 3417, and maybe also 2095, 1956, and 838. A list of links to Maxim's digital pot appnotes is at http://www.maxim-ic.com/appnotes10.cfm/ac_pk/9/ln/en .
And http://www.Intersil.com has appnote 1145, which contains many different application schematics with digital potentiometers.
There are also some ideas in a White Paper, from Dec 2000, by Wolfson Microelectronics Ltd, which also discusses their WM8816 stereo volume control IC. Sorry, I don't have a link; just the PDF.
The datasheets for the Analog Devices AD5227 and AD5220 (and probably others) also have quite a bit of applications information (at http://www.analog.com).
I also have an appnote from dalsemi.com, about the DS1669, that appears to have some possibly-interesting information.
And, at http://www.edn.com (Electronic Design News magazine), I have, in the past, found several articles about digital pots, including one about using inexpensive relays to build a digital pot.
Many other semiconductor manufacturers' websites also have some good appnotes about digital pots.

Though I'm quite familiar with the most material you mentioned
Intersil's appnote 1145 came news to me.
