    I'm looking for a solution to switch two audio channels. The channels
    are in the range of 0..3V and 0..-3V. The distortion should be < 0.03%
    and crosstalk < 90dB.

    Ch0+ ---
    ---- CH0+ or CH1+
    Ch1+ ---

    Ch0- ---
    ---- CH0- or CH1-
    Ch1- ---
    The use of relay is not possible due to their power dissipation.
    Any suggestions?
  2. I have not used this chip for audio but have had excellent results
    with video
    There is also a 4-1 selector AD8184.

    For audio it may not have enough headroom since audio folks have a
    habit of sloppy level control. Now that I offended audio people, video
    levels are far more consistent even across consumer formats.

    Switching video requires gain/offset/timing matching. Not difficult
    but required for no breakup.

    Nothing beats relays for low distortion. And there are some that only draw a
    few tens of milliwatts. Otherwise, do a search for "Analog Switches". There
    are dozens if not hundreds to choose from.

    I'm wondering about the datasheets of CMOS switches. I've got data about
    THD+N, crosstalk and many others. What I'm missing here is the noise
    produced by the CMOS technology.
    My microphone singnals will be around 500uV (or even less)! I really
    don't know how how much noise I can estimate from CMOS switches.
