DBX has made some single ended noise reduction products over the years.   
But they are, in general, less effective than software solutions, in my 
experience and IMHO.

Once again, best practice is transfers to digital should be done without 
noise reduction.   Software and other tools for clean up once digitized will 
continue to improve and fall in cost.   Once you've inserted a noise 
reduction process before digitization it cannot be undone.   And in the past I 
personally have done pre-digital NR which I now regret cannot be undone.
