Would it be possible to connect a turntable to a mic input to completely bypass the preamp?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.
The output from a turntable is about 47k ohms. You need to get it to about 600 ohms for a standard line. Your mic is about 150 ohms (well, these can vary heavily though).
You need a RIAA pre-amp just to get to mic-input so might as well go for line.
