Yes, go buy a cheap preamp, and connect to your headphone amp.

stupid question number 1067...if a headphone amp says it is a preamp+headphone amp, does this mean it will act as a phono preamp? or does it need to specify "phono preamp"?

It needs to specify 'phono preamp'. I bet phono preamp + headphone amp will be very rare stuff.

 

Preamp + headphone amp means the amp can be act as a preamp for a speaker power amplifier. Since a stereo speaker preamp and headphone amp are very similar, some companies put RCA output so the amp can be used that way.

More precisely, you want a 'headphone amp with phono stage'. The problem is, most of these kinds are used for cheap studio gears and they are probably junk compared to ordinary consumer headphone amplifiers.
