For that many devices you really need to get a receiver not just a small use DAC. Most DACs are setup for use for several devices, but usually for different connection types.

How did you even look at the FiiO K5 for your use, it's has like 1/5th of the connections you are looking to use.

Return the powered speakers, buy a receiver with non-powered speakers, connect everything to the receiver, including your turntables.

Computer, two consoles, disk player, two record players, multiple headphones, you need a large box.

Something like this one https://www.amazon.com/Cambridge-Audio-CXA61-Two-Channel-Amplifier/dp/B083T84BPQ/ref=pd_di_sccai_3?pd_rd_w=AeCGE&pf_rd_p=c9443270-b914-4430-a90b-72e3e7e784e0&pf_rd_r=7XV8ERBKWWY9Q5TTD0WV&pd_rd_r=edd9b0c3-27cf-4a16-a84e-a3dab32face7&pd_rd_wg=OwlKs&pd_rd_i=B083T84BPQ&psc=1

For all of your questions, including wiring, you will be able to sort out from the receiver manual.
