John is absolutely right about fouling up the phono EQ, and it will be very difficult to correct later. If you have to do this, flat transfer is probably the best idea, applying phono EQ with a digital plug-in that provides proper frequency and phase correction, like the Virtual Phono Preamp in DC 7-10.

Keep in mind that if you dub a 78 at another speed, unless you can dub it without any phono-EQ (flat), what you will get will be really fouled up, as the phono-EQ, which is specific to fixed frequencies, will be way, way off. In other words, you will be seriously compounding the errors. Of course if you like the results ...
