Technically, you could do a single cycle of PCR to "step-out" your adapters to their full length. That can result in no PCR duplication. Personally, I would do at least 3 cycles. And would only go that low with trepidation. Lots of issues that don't matter at ng/ul concentrations do matter at pg/ul. (DNA binding levels of plastics, for instance.)
