An AD converter isn’t a good option at all because that would cause a delay and reduces audio format to stereo. 
I recommend to use a hdmi audioextractor with toslink out. 

Check the signal being sent, too. Make sure it is at most Dolby Digital, and not Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, or Atmos of any kind. 

Depends, I suspect, on the app in use, as well as the Mac’s settings. Have you asked Apple?

How to change in or check in Mac mini?

Imo you just have to avoid Dolby Atmos because Sonos Ray isn’t compatible with that. DD+ always has got a DD core within and even DTS standard 5.1 is compatible with Ray. 
Audio settings have to be set individually on the used software player.
