Joining analog to modern HT receivers.

I have a bit of an odd setup.

I have what I like to call my "analog ecosystem". It consist of my turntable and cassette decks connected to a Yamaha C-60 preamplifier.

Then I have my "digital ecosystem". It consist of my home theater PC and Blu Ray player connected to my HT receiver (Anthem MRX-300) via HDMI.

I have the pre-outs of the Yamaha C-60 connected to an analog input on the home theater receiver, but this makes use of the volume control on the Yamaha C-60. Would I be better off connecting the two sections together by running the tape 2 record OUT to the analog input on the HT Receiver instead of using the pre-out?

Second question.. I'd like to do some recording from the receiver. Would running the Zone 2 analog OUT to the Tape 2 playback inputs work?

Run the line out, "REC OUT", of the preamp into the analog line in of the HT receiver. The Zone 2 out of the HT receiver should be line-level, so it should be alright. Check the owner's manual.

I've been kicking around doing an HTR upgrade for awhile.

I'm torn on whether or not I can (or should) get the Yamaha C-60 pre-amp out of the chain. I'm using its built in phono preamp which I think is pretty decent. I do have a Pro-ject Phono Box SE preamp I could use as an alternative, but some of the new top end receivers are coming with phono. On the tape end, I have a DBX-400 to connect my decks to.

I've been looking at receivers in the $2K price range. Lots of nice options which almost makes it harder to settle on one.

Right now the top three I'm seriously considering are:

Anthem MRX-720
Marantz SR7012
Yamaha RX-A3070

I use it for music 90% of the time, and all three have there pros and cons. The Yamaha and Marantz are feature laden and have the latest audio codecs, streaming options, and 4K video. That being said, the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X stuff are things that I will never use (not putting speakers in/on the ceiling). The streaming crap isn't needed either. I have a HT computer that can do all that stuff. I really just need 7 channel Dolby True HD or DTS Master.

Part of me says to screw all the features and room correction stuff. Go with something like a Rotel RSX-1562 or Cambridge Audio CRX200 that is built for audio. If/when the day comes to replace my Panasonic V10 plasma and go 4K, I'll pony up for a 4K UHD Blu Ray player with dual HDMI outputs.
