The nuforce is cheaper than the AUDINST Dac, so if it's much better than my xtrememusic i will be pleased to get that product.

I haven't heard either the nuforce or the audinst first hand so I can't really tell you. They are both highly regarded for their price range and I would have to assume that both would be better than an xtremefi music. You might want to look at local audio shops in your area if you have any and see what types of usb dacs they offer. It might be worth purchasing local if it means that the return process would be easier if you decide that the quality isn't as good as you'd hoped.

I think i will hardly go for that...nuforce toy.. of 130 bucks

I read a lot of awesome review (at Amazon) of a lot of audio fanatics, comparing that toy in each song, each minute, etc etc.

Also it's very portable, so i can use it with my Macbook Air anywhere..and started loving it.

Of course that the ebay product from Asia was AWESOME, but it will cost a lot to me..for instance...( Price + Shipping cost ) * 1.5 "CUSTOM's TAX" = more than 270 bucks. And maybe 60 days of free international shipping

Yes if the prices end up being 130 vs 260 then I would definitely recommend the nuforce. In the US the price difference would be 130 vs 180 in which case the decision is more difficult. I hope you enjoy the nuforce!
