6db of Dyamic Range.....make that much difference?

If two almost identically functioned Audio interfaces have 107 and 113db dynamic range
respectively, is that going to make a difference for the home recording setup?
Im comparing the ESP1010 and Layla 3G. Layla has 113db range. I got ESI feedback from
my query to them that their unit is 107db and is measured equivalently as to how the Layla
is spec'....so its apples to apples comparison. The $ difference is $100 less for
It seems to me then that it boils down to paying $100 for 1 bit of
improvement for Layla3G. You think thats worth it? $319 vs $414.

Seems to me these things have reached the stage where specs have little bearing on how it
sounds, and you probably need world class ears, monitors, room acoustics and recording
front end to appreciate the difference.
While it's probably good advice to get
the best you can afford, if your kind of music has little dynamic range, the ESP1010 will
probably suit you, although you cannot discount a products reputation for reliability and
driver quality either. We've so far heard little of either of these two models.
Isn't the M-audio Delta1010 also in this kind of price range? That's 113db in and out
(measured) I think.
