How to Improve Gain for RCA on Preamp. Can it be done?

Thanks for the help. I am using a MM cartridge. My TT connects to a 90’s luxman integrated receiver with phono stage (not bad actually) but I could not for the life of me find the phono output (or figure it out). This is the closest I could find ...

Best Server To Run Roon Core

XLR or RCA for my new DAC
