I see from the literature that the A-Minima has a sound level of 29db. Is that level low enough for sync sound?

Depends on who you're asking.

It is nowhere near as quiet as an XTRprod or an ARRICAM, but generally I find it to be suitable for sync in most situations, but if your in an absolutly dead room, at minimum focus from a mic'd subject... you may want to use the barney and you may need to scrub the camera noise in post... but I've shot in a relativly quiet room at a reasonable distance from any mic'd subject and had no problems whatsoever.

Silent cameras from the 60s and early 70s were in the 30-32db range.
