You can use a SUT instead of buying a whole new phono stage. Bob's Devices or Silvercore are excellent for the money.

I spent a good part of the afternoon evaluating the phone pre amps and transformers that would solve this issue. In the end i went with a transformer. the most expensive route but kept my tube system in place with no SS intrusion and sounds outstanding. The transformer is a Lyra Erodion; I am pleased.
