Hi Benjamin.  Are you certain that you are not overloading the phono
preamp?  78's can generate surprisingly hot outputs from the cartridge.
The preamp we use has adjustable gain, and I routinely have to turn it down
when I transfer 78's.

I suppose you could just look at the waveform and determine if the
distortion is caused by clipping.
