Yes, way too much! The phono section of your receiver is set up for seeing an output of a few millivolts. The preamp output is in volts. You can hook the phono stage on your table into your preamp and then into a line level [tuner , etc.] input on your receiver. If you do this use the tape out outputs on the preamp as this bypasses the volume control on the preamp. My advice would be not to do it, the improvement in sound is uncertain. I would wait until I was ready to make a major upgrade to the whole system. If your receiver has a" preamp in" set of inputs I would consider it, otherwise you will be using 2 preamps in series and the one in the receiver will be the weak link.
