AD9832

I am looking to use the AD9832 as a local oscillator in a 50R system. It seems to me that the output current is too low to use with 50R mixers requiring > 1.4 V drive. This drivers the need for additional gain / driver stages which may introduce phase errors / distortion into a good signal chain. Has anyone addressed this problem ? It seems that the old AD7008 with a 40mA output current was a perfect solution and I wonder why it was obsoleted ?
