Looking for signal-pro/pre-amp to connect AppleTV & PS4 to Anthem MCA30 & Paradigm St

Looking for suggestions for a simple signal-pro/pre-amp to connect an AppleTV & PS4 to an Anthem MCA30 & Paradigm Studio 100v5 left, right and center.
Going to built ins so this system will be in my home office and will be used for music and occasionally movies or video games.
All I really need is volume control and an AV codec DAC to get from toslink to XLR or RCA.

Thanks for any help

Thank you

Unfortunately none of those provide volume/attenuation control

I'm essentially looking for simple DAC/preamp like the Cambridge dacmagic-plus with Dolby decoding and multi channel XLR out.

It doesn't appear to exist short of a full blown surround preamp.

I would get an inexpensive pro mixer and a DAC.

Why do you need volume controls to connect the PS4 and Apple to the Anthem? Blu-ray players don’t have them, nor do sat receivers, etc.
