Do I need a DAC with a MAC?


I've been thinking about investing in some new reference headphones (upgrading from my Audio Technica M50x's) so I just bought a couple items from Massdrop. The Sennheiser 6xx (basically the 650's) and a headphone amp - the Max Cavealli Tube Hybrid Amp.

Now, I've never had a dedicated headphone amp before and I understand people usually get a DAC to go with it. If my macbook already has an internal DAC to I really need to buy one? I also have my Roland Quad Capture Interface.

I personally really like the DAC in my Mac (lol’d typing that). I didn’t realize how much I liked it until recently doing a mix on a MS PC, and realized how nice the sound out of my Mac really was by comparison.
