[Solved] What is a good line level booster?

Is there such a thing as a quiet (no buzz, humming) line level booster? I need to get a bit more from the MiniDSP (2V RMS up to 2.25V RMS at least).

Thanks

What do you mean by pre-amp?
A preamplifier (preamp or "pre") is an electronic amplifier that converts a weak electrical signal into an output signal strong enough to be noise-tolerant and strong enough for further processing, or for sending to a power amplifier and a loudspeaker.

Why not just upgrade to a MiniDSP HD?

A traditional pre-amp won't work in this case.

That's what I have, and it "only" does 2V RMS. Looks like I'm getting a Samson unit.

Well, it might work, depending on the preamp. However, it's still "RCA" level signal (around 2V RMS). Balanced is much higher, which is what I'm converting to here.

What kind of equipment are you using that requires that much of a voltage input?

It's a Crest Pro-Lite 7.5 which requires 2.25V RMS for full output.

I'll sell you my miniDSP Balanced unit, which should have a higher output.

To close this out, I found a used Samson S-convert for a good price and it works wonders.
