Tracking With Expensive Pre-Amps
But for those that have combi-XLRs or mic/line inputs with separate mic and line sockets, they generally pad the line input down by 20-30dB and then pass it through the mic preamp.
But with modern op-amps and low-noise transistor arrays, running at just 20-30dB of gain, the noise performance will be more than good enough even for 95% of 'critical' applications, and the distortion will be 0.005 or less and completely irrelevant.
