I have heard the phono stage in the Aria Integrated at Audio Connection and found it to be quite nice. I am sure it is as good, if not better than the phono pre in the Yamaha.

I listened to the Aria integrated at Audioconnection, as well. Though I didn't audition the phono, I found it to be a very capable piece of equipment. It so impressed me that I am leaning toward a pair of Aria Monoblocks for my office system.
I have no doubt you will find the phono preamp to be up to par.
