If you have a MAC, you don't need a DAC

It really depends on the exactly what dedicated DAC you are referring to, as well as the type of music. Sure, portable DAC's will not bring much more quality compared to the built in DAC, but the higher tier options almost definitely will. Not to mention if you're listening to DSD format, a dedicated DSD DAC will almost ALWAYS sound better than the one on built into the Mac.
