I'm not sure I understand correctly the question...
As for 'noise floor' much for example depends on the input signal, 
environment etc. or are you talking about the intrinsic 'noisiness' of 
pre-amps on the cited devices?. Maybe if you explain the situation/setup 
one could have a clearer picture.
Anyway, because the SM57 is a dynamic microphone you should be ok with 
virtually any decent mic preamp: at an extreme limit you could probably 
even plug it into your computer's "mic in" (but then of course might as 
well use a 10$ skype microphone or something :) ).
