Hi men sorry for the question obvious BUT Can I have improvement if I use the XRL headphone out of my DX7s' Topping to RCA Input of my headphone amplifier?

Logically I use a cable adapter from XLR to RCA, I tell this because I see that the XLR outputs have better features than the 1/4 jack unbalanced out.

Thanks Men
You should use the line-out on the back to connect with an external headphone amplifier. Not the front headphone outputs.
XLR to RCA adapter is a terrible idea and has zero benefits or better features.

I realize this is probably just an unintended language gaffe, but while few in number there are women on ASR too.

Sorry man but why? I now i'm listening a Vinyl rip by Pbthal that sound fantastic with my Headphone Amplifier Little dot Mk2 upgraded. This one it's connected to unbalanced headphone out of my Topping Dx7s. I cannot use the Rca line out because i have a couple of active speakers attacche.

Thanks for all and excuse me for my questions.

HI! There are much diference between the DX7 Pro?
It's comparable in SQ with the SMSL Su8 V2 + SMSL SP200?
