Personally, I think most people here fool themsevles in order to justify their massive expenditures, but I'm not going to start an argument about it.
Even if there is a difference, ignorance is bliss. I am not going to spend money on DAC's anymore because of this. I find that a good amp provides much better value for your money. I hate spending money and then realizing you can't tell the difference.
I'm pretty sure the BitHead is great for all those lousey sound cards on a lot of laptops but the MacBooks DAC is pretty damn good. However my computer at work is horrible and easily needs an external DAC.
