Thanks all for the advice. I just ordered up the Pyle pre-amp PP999 after
listening to this guy:
Fifteen buck on EBay from a top rated plus vendor with free returns. So,
can't go wrong but I'm assuming it will work as advertised.

Not digital vs analog as much as a line level issue I suspect. Phono
inputs on receivers USED TO include an internal PHONO PREAMP. Newer
receivers don't include that anymore. Many new turntables include a
phono preamp in the turntable and a switch to chose if you use that
one or not. But the good news is you can buy a separate phono preamp.
Lots oto choose from at many price points. Audiophiles may say you
can get a better preamp that way anyway and so you are better off.
