Just ordered a mic preamp and it's on its way.. I want to connect it to my Pod HD Pro X & as far as I know the best way to do this is to connect it to a line level input. However, in the manual it stated that the line input in the Pod HD Pro X is unbalanced. 

Now the real question: Will it deteriorate its sound if I connect my preamp to an unbalanced input? or is it better if I connect my preamp to the mic input and set the mic gain on the pod really low.

Btw here is the chain going to look like: Shure sm7b > Preamp > Pod HD Pro X. 
I really dont want to buy an audio interface since the one in Pod is good enough to connect to my daw. Although, I'll buy one only if I have to  :mellow:

 

Thanks.

From my measurements you can see that plugging a mic preamp into the mic input will work just fine as long as you properly set the mic input trim to the proper value (i.e., don't clip the signal). It can be dialed in to have more gain or less gain than the Aux/Guitar inputs. I think that would be the cleanest and most straight forward way to get the microphone signal chain in.
