If you have a seperate phono preamp you should be able to plug that directly into your reel to reel. You'll need it to have adjustable gain, though. If not, you may have to go a different route.

Yes, a phono preamp is the way to go. Many units have selectable gain and cartridge loading. Try The Needle Doctor or Audio Advisor for a wide range of options, including a few tube models.
