       I just double checked and you can find out much more by searching on
the web, including some low-cost stereo analog limiters used for some FM
radio and other audio systems. Limiters are also sometimes used in the
recording studio.


Just to comment: all analog limiters add distortion.  Digital compressors and
limiters don't do that, as the signal is delayed a bit, so that when an
is detected in the sidechain, the gain control gets to attenuate the signal
before it hits its head the ceiling.

Check for example TC Electronics "Finalizer".
