Anyone have some thoughts on which preamp to use? The Pioneer Elite SC-25 A/V receiver (2008 era) or the Kenwood KR-8010 receiver (1978 era)?
I know it’s a late response but that AVR will have a DSP (digital signal processor) in the path and your ‘78 Kenwood will be pure analog. I noticed a difference between my Denon AVR and my 1976 Pioneer SX-850. The Pioneer was much more pleasing. (Although the Denon was quieter)

Just something to consider.
I didn't think the DSP would be in path of phono-in to line-out. Would it really? I thought it would remain analog path.
It actually does in my Denon AVR 2803. There’s a ‘direct’ option and ‘analog’ selection but you can still hear it in there. I use a vintage Pioneer SX-850 receiver for playing vinyl just because of that.

By the way I got hold of a Beringer UFO-202 for digitizing my records and it works really well.

The Pioneer Elite SC-25 doesn't allow sending the analog inputs to the digital outputs. I'd think if the analog inputs hit the DSP it would be available at the digital outputs as well. Of course nothing technical that would enforce that behavior. It does have "direct" and "pure direct" (analog). But I think that only applies to what's being sent to the amp section.

Wish I had a signal path flow chart and a block diagram.
