I am getting this amp and will receive at the end of December. My DAC is an audio gd r2r11. I am planning to use rca to xlr interconnect with it so that I can run my headphones(lcd2) balanced. Will it work? Will there be any issues?

RCA is single ended. If you attempt to run that signal through adapters, the input will still be single ended. My guess would be that the amp performs its own phase split if you plug a single ended source into it and listen through the XLR4 output. So, no not "truly" balanced, ie from the dac unit directly, using dual XLR3 outputs.

You lose the (ground) on XLR input, which SE interconnects do not have. Just stick to RCA, they are fine.
