I'd guess there's a mismatch between your cartridge and phono stage or a tonearm/cartridge alignment problem.

I connect my phono stage to Tape input and distortion nearly
Shall I use Tape connectors as my analogue source input?
I think that replacing my current phono stage (Thorens) with
a Krell phono will totally eliminate the problem(my phono stage doesn't have any gain knob, it's just have a moving magnet/moving coil switch) what's your suggestions?
Thanks for your help.
Are you using an MM or MC cartridge and do you know the output? My thoughts are that the combination of the cart with the phono setting is somehow just at the edge of distortion due to improper loading and this is picked up by the highly resolving Krell. The Krell's inputs are hard to overload so it's likely to be at the cart/phono pre interface.
I use an EAR834P with my 400xi with excellent results (Lyra Argo i cartridge)
