Here is a photo of the AV connections on the rear panel of the STR-DN1030 located on the left.

Starting on the left side are Digital Coaxial and two Digital Optical inputs.

Moving right are two sets of Component Video (red, green, blue) inputs, followed by a set of component video outputs.

Just to the right of the component video connections are the AM/FM radio antenna connections (Indoor AM and FM antennas are provided).

Moving down to the section is a row of Composite (yellow) video inputs and outputs.

Moving down to the final section is a row of analog stereo inputs and outputs, a set of Zone 2 preamp outputs, and dual subwoofer preamp outputs.

It must be noted that there are not 5.1/7.1 analog audio inputs or outputs and there is also no provision for direct connection of a Turntable for playing Vinyl Records. You cannot use the analog audio inputs to connect a turntable due to the fact that the impedance and output voltage of the turntable cartridge is different than for other types of audio components.

If you desire to connect a turntable to the STR-DN1030, you can either employ an additional Phono Preamp or buy a one of the breed of turntables have built-in phono preamps that will work with the audio connections provided on the STR-DN1030.
