How about for LAPTOPs?


What are the options?

Is there a sound card with digital-out or good DAC for laptops?

We use a 24 bit 96 kHz sound card for our professional test kits. It has digital in and out SPDIF. I have not used it for music listening, but it is fantastic for our measurements.

You'll see it listed on the left column, the U24.
Take a look at this too:
