  1. The TDA1521 is not available at both of the largest electronics parts distributors in north America. Is it obsolete?

  2. Indeed NXP TDA1521 is obsolete with no cross available. Take a look at Mouser Parts: 511-TDA2009A and 863-LA4625-E to see if they will work for the application. Mouser.com
