NO! If you use another phono pre use it into a line level input; otherwise you will overload your pre and possibly damage it. The 103 is a moving coil cartridge which requires more amplification than a moving magnet cartridge. See if your pre has a MC setting; if it does not you will need a step up transformer or head amp to raise the output of the cartridge or else go to a moving magnet. There is endless lit on here on the differences between them.
