I'm buying a turntable, speakers, and amp. I'm really interested in the Topping TP20 or Dayton DTA120, but they don't have phono inputs. They do have RCA inputs. Would I be able to get a phono preamp and still use it with a turntable? Or can you recommend me either an integrated amp, or phono preamp + power amp that would work with a turntable? I'm planning on getting Micca MB42X speakers. I want to use the system for both my laptop and turntable.
Thanks in advance

There are others on this site. Excellent people to deal with.
The turntable is MM. The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is the one I'll most likely get. I was also looking at the Rega RP1.
This is the phono preamp I'm thinking of buying because of the 3 aux inputs, on/off button, and volume knob. Is there anything I need to look for to make sure it's compatible with either of those integrated amps I'm thinking of buying?
My budget for the amps is $500 total. And this is for a desktop setup. So, listening distance will be 1-2 feet.
