Default Sympatico - input from DC coupled DAC's balanced output

Would I need any capacitors at inputs of Sympatico if I want to drive it directly with my DC coupled DAC's balanced outputs?

DAC has a volume control and I want to minimize the stages. Its manufacturer states that output DC offset is targeted at 10mV (+- 3mV) at factory.

(Excuse me if this is an obvious question, I am new to the analogue world and hope may be Sympatico's design would help avoiding caps.)

Thanks a lot.

OK, I'll need them: Legato 3 - Look ma! No caps!

Now back to practicing soldering with Velleman kits...
