and an intergrated amp has a power amp and preamp in one chassis.
think of it this way:
a line stage has no phono stage ("head amp"), it's only a means to change the input and "volume" to a power amp
a phono stage is required to reverse the RIAA recording curve, the industry standard in vinyl. A MM stage has less gain than an MC stage because the MM output is much more than a MC
a preamp is unable to drive speakers, it's only a means to change the input to a power amp, and switch sources and a phono stage (usually, but not always)
a (power) amp has no controls, just amplification stage(s), and high power output to drive the loudspeakers
amp+ preamp (whether preamp or line stage) = intergrated amp
intergrated amp + tuner = receiver
