Every 'normal' integrated amplifier has a pre and power amplifier inside

 

The PRE stage takes a tiny delicate input from the sources, cd, streamer, turntable, radio, etc and switches it to the outputs

This has to be done without losing any of that tiny signal of course, and it also has to do the first amplification and volume stage

 

The POWER section takes the output from the PRE and does the heavy lifting to bring it up to the correct voltage to drive the loudspeakers

At a certain performance level keeping these two distinct parts separate gives better performance

 

Many preamplifiers now come with streamers built in. This makes sense from both a technical and a cost basis and has also sparked debates about digital vs analgue voliume controls.

If you're system is mostly streaming then the latest technologies to do the volume in the digital domain really pays dividends.
