I recently bought the Benchmark DAC3B, an ESS DAC, for $1560 new. I am using it on my main system but I initially bought it for second system duties. At this time I am very happy with the DAC3B in the main system. I am considering the new Denafrips T+ to take it's place but really have no rush to change at the moment.
I had 2 wyred4sound dac’s. The last one I had was the dac2 dsd se with Femto clock upgrade. I found it quite forward sounding. My taste leans towards the r to r ladder DACs. I find them to be smoother with a mid Hall presentation. I also had an original dac1 and also found the presentation too much in your face.

My impression is that all of these inputs you require are not for audio only devices, and some maybe for other entertainment pieces like TV, video game.
You can get a Toslink splitter from Amazon to add more inputs. Search "Toslink Splitter" on Amazon. I have a device that takes 5 toslink inputs and changes the input with a dial. Worked great for my TV, Xbox, etc.. Getting multiple coax is something I am not sure about.
These are D2D converters and require a DAC. You can get good to great DAC’s for under $1500 these days. Other companies also make these type of D2D converters. These devices make it easy to buy a DAC with limited inputs.
