Has anyone found the cable shown as G on the "parts names and descriptions" for the back? It's labeled *3.5 coaxial/3.5 optical Subwoofer output. I've never seen a cable that provides both an input and an output at the same time- Is that what this is supposed to do? Thanks

You know, the SMSL amp I am really impressed with (purely from specs) is the SMSL A8. That sounds like something with just the right mix of features and spec one can live with for a long time. https://www.amazon.com/A8-Amplifier-Headphone-Solution-ICEpower/dp/B076BG9XRC

How does an amp which consumes 50W of power generate amplifier output of 80W x 2 into speaker loads? I'm just reading the specs. Don't know anything more.

I've been using the RB42s with an SMSL AD18 for about 4 weeks. I have zero complaints. At volume level 25 (out of 60) the speakers are nearly deafening.

Does this device also broadcast bluetooth to Bluetooth capable headphone, or is only a receiver? For example, could a TV be hooked up to one of the inputs, and broadcast in Bluetooth. Thanks

BT is input only, but you could probably plug a BT transmitter into the Headphone out.

I have been successfully using this for over a month and really enjoyed it however, starting this week you can not resolve a BT connection. The device is discoverable but always errors. I've done updates, restarts, multiple devices, and forgot/rediscover all to no avail. Anyone else have this issue?

It may have connected to another device. Had this issue when trying to connect my iPhone and didn’t realize that my Echo was already connected.
