True about running it trough the circuit, but you won't get the saturation of the tape itself in that case!

As far as realtime playback goes, it is possible if the unit it set up that way, but I doubt the Nagra works like that. However, you can run audio through its circuits and use it as a sort of preamp.
i don't think Nagra machines work in that way. there main use was to record sound on film sets and foley/audio post studios. they were made to be pretty clean sounding so if you want something dirty it's probably not the best choice. if your a mastering engineer it's a good investment.
