LME49710 and LME49720 end of life

Why is TI ending production of the LME49710 and LME49720?  

I own a small boutique custom recording equipment company, and the majority of the income my business makes comes from two products I've designed which use these two opamps, not to mention a 3rd product which I was preparing to launch that is also based around these IC's.  This is going to force me to completely re-work my business plan for the next few years, as I'll have to re-design all of these products.  Is there a suitable alternative IC that TI offers, with the same performance characteristics as the LME49710 and 20, which will require as little re-design work as possible, and also offer me the same sonic quality?

In other words, is there (or will there be) a drop in replacement opamp that sounds the same?  If not, then I find that very upsetting.
