Attaching amplifier to Genelec 8040B. Safe?

Would it be safe to use this balanced headphone amplifier as a volume controller/pre-amp after my DAC and connect it right before my Genelec 8040B's using XLR cables.

I do not want to blow any input amplifier sections of my Genelec's,

In general it is ok to use headphone output to feed signal to the Genelec product.
