I ran HDMI via Ethernet through the attic and ran it under the rug in to the projector that sits on an open ottoman. Sure, I miss that teal color of the old ottoman, but at least we still have a pillow top for the pups and a bit of storage space for 3D glasses and a few nick-knacks. (see pic below to see where I put the projector):

Ethernet to HDMI
Using a wireless mouse allowed me to plug my Dragonfly DAC into the second USB port. I haven’t tested it with other DACs, but this one has a problem playing a clean Hi Rez signal, but it works perfectly with my lossless files and Apple Music options. It would be interesting to see if a powered DAC would do better. Maybe I will test it down the road. I just hate unplugging one of my DACs from a separate system. However, it is nice to have music on demand without messing with anything but the Apple Remote app that controls Apple Music on the Mini.
