Can I use my THX 789 amp on high gain with the SDAC Balanced using an XLR connection?

So, after reading the manuals and specs of both products, it states in the THX 789 manual that you should not use high gain when using a DAC/source with greater and 2.1 V output, otherwise the preamp may clip internally. On the SDAC Balanced spec sheet, it states that the XLR output is 4.3 Vrms. I have them connected via XLR. As someone not very familiar with these kind of measurements, does this mean I shouldn't use the amp on high gain due to the DAC outputting more than 2.1 V? Or are V and Vrms completely different measurements? Thanks in advance, sorry if I'm just confusing myself :D
