Dutch & Dutch 8c with multiple sources

I’m really interested in getting the Dutch & Dutch 8c. I want to use a Mac mini for music, however I also want to be able to run the audio from my TV through the them. How would I do this?
If I use a cheap external dac as a preamp then I’m limiting the quality of the input to the 8c, which is fine for tv but is terrible for music from the computer
Don't confuse price with quality in DACs. I just used an example there are a lot of DACs that can be used as a preamp. Maybe this link will help.

Is it possible to plug the Mac mini into the network socket (via router) for use with Roon and also have something plugged into the aes socket?
djones51: thank you for that article, that has a lot of useful information however, I really want to get rid of extra dacs and use the DAC in the 8c
All D&D needed to do was include one optical spdif input and it would have saved users so much grief. This is a real design flaw
