But now vinyl sales are increasing again, they may be becoming included in amps again..
Yes, I see that my NAD 316BEE amplifier was updated to V2 in 2018(?) with the addition of a phono preamp.

But even us oldies will certainly notice (mechinical) mains hum. When researching the cause of it on my 316 I found many posts about 3020s with the same problem. I think all amps can suffer from it - I wouldn't buy an old one without hearing it first.

My earlier amp - an A&R A60 - died when the volume pots wore out. One advantage of newer designs - like the 316 - is a remote.
