Still, now it's very hard to order any integrated circuits.

I really don't know who will manufacture the next batch.

After I will manufacture the 2nd and 3rd order batches I have to close or freeze this project due to a very hard situation on the market with components - IC shortage. Most of the ICs have lead time ~52 weeks.

Here are the examples:

PCM5100A:
USB2514B:
ATTINY5:

Don't be so hard on yourself. All small board companies are facing the same chip shortage challenges. It is out of your control and beyond what anyone anticipated. It is a huge project but also a great learning lesson. The boards are easily worth twice what you changed they are so good.
