Electronic – MP3 encoding chips?


I'm looking for MP3 encoding chips
All I found is this MAS3587f which costs about 4 $USD ??
Is there other cheap chips ?

Another one is the VS1063 from the Finnish company VLSI Solution (http://www.vlsi.fi), although $4 seems like a great price -- the VS1063 is $25 each for 1-99, only goes down to $4.80 each for 1000+ pieces.
