Denon to Sony

Third time lucky...

I recently purchased a Denon Universal player for the SACD/blu-ray audio capability. At the moment it is connected to my old Technics hifi amp through the phono connection. I was thinking of purchasing the Sony STRDN840 A/V receiver but would like some clarification on the following.

The Denon has only one HDMI connection out, the Sony has a HDMI imput for SACD/CD audio and another labelled Blu-ray audio import. Does this mean that I lose out on either one of these formats?

A stupid question probably, but I want to make sure before shelling out. Thank you.

No, these are just labels for the inputs. All HDMI inputs are identical.

OK, so if I plug it into the BD audio HDMI it will still play the CD and SACD was well?

Thanks.
