I think I've managed to find some from Italy, I was trying to avoid going outside of Europe if possible.

It's amazing how much more expensive the CS8412 is compared to the 14/16 now.

Unfortunately that is what happens to discontinued parts when there is still some demand for them. Another thing to watch out for is counterfeit parts which turn up quite frequently in reputable disty channels once a part is a discon.
 
I'm checking with a couple of possible sources for CS8414 chips. One of them is definitely a broker; I've purchased through them before, and got burnt once by counterfeits from China. They do claim to have some from a source in the US. The other place appears to have stock in the US, and pricing might be under $10 per chip. And they're close enough to me that I could conceivably drive there in a day to kick up a fuss if the deal goes bad and I didn't mind spending $250 in gas and ferry fares.

Anyway, if one of these sources works out, how interested would anyone be in getting some of these?
