pioneer vsx 9700s receiver

Hello everyone---I just registered today and i am a newbie.Last saturday,i picked up a 1991 Pioneer vsx 9700s receiver in a garage sale.It came with a remote but no manual.In the rear panel ,i see a lot of connectors labeled.My question is that since no connector is labeled for dvd player,how do i connect the dvd to the receiver.I connected my speakers to the receiver and they sound beautiful . ihave a pair of JBL 880 speakers and i didnt realise they would sound so good with this receiver.Thank you for your time.
