The output of a turntable is very low, so I think you'll need the phono stage in between to boost the signal. You might as well find a preamp with a phono stage built in, you'll have source switching and volume control as well.

Yes, you will most likely need a phono stage and the NAD you have should suffice.

The phono stage also does RIAA equalization in addition to boost gain.

You are fortunate that Ebay is loaded with inexpensive chinese phono preamps with RIAA equalization that are actually quite good for around $20 that can plug into your line level inputs.
