AV Receivers have several pairs of analog stereo inputs, generally RCA jacks, color coded Red and White, some paired with video input jacks but others intended for use with tape decks, CD players or other pure audio devices. Just don't plug your cable into a "tape out" or "monitor" jack, designed for recording, not playing, tapes!
The RX-Ax030 models (1030, 2030, and 3030) are the last that also have 7.1 analog RCA jacks for connecting analog surround audio from disk players like the Oppos and some (mostly older) players from other manufacturers, including Denon.
I specifically bought the 1030 for its 7.1 analog input jacks, so I could compare that connection with the HDMI link from my Oppo. I ended up using HDMI because that allowed YPAO's room correction, which the 7.1 analog input bypassed.
With some older disk players, SACD output may be limited to analog outputs, requiring the use of the multichannel analog input for surround or standard analog stereo inputs for the stereo SACD track. (Sony was very reluctant to drop their ban on digital output from SACD players.)
