So if I get this right; this has no line-out.
Hence to use the multiple power speaker sets I have and use an Amazon echo as BT input, I'm basically better-off looking elsewhere?
Shame as this would otherwise have been the missing piece of my home audio setup...

It has a line out... Believe it or not one connection is split as the Opt1/Coax IN and Sub/Line Out. All you need is a mini (std headphone) jack to RCA cable and you are golden. I currently use it to power two Klipsch speakers and a Polk sub in the bedroom. Works like a charm.

So I could power my passive Klipsch R14's and simultaneously run my powered Klipsch Sixes using a mini jack to RCA into the Sub/Line Out?

As shown on its rear panel diagram:

... port C uses a 3.5mm connection, but it is not a LINE OUT. The Left channel is used as a coaxial digital input, while the Right channel is a subwoofer output.

I dont know crap about any of this, and still don't. I dont know a line out from a cook out, and in your stereo knowledge self worth dickheadedness youve competely failed this assignment which is to inform me one way or another ...yes or no to my question. A+ in "all hat and no cattle" tho.

I took the time to post the official SMSL diagram of the back of the unit, which is more than Massdrop did. (Amazingly, they don't even shown a photo of the back of the unit on the main page!)
If you'd have asked, I would have explained to you the function and benefit of having a true analog "Line Out". But after your post full of "dickheadedness", I'll leave that up to you.
For owners (and prospective owners) of the AD18, you can just use its headphone jack as a Line Out substitute.

Yes, if you use the headphone jack on the front as your Line Out for your powered Klipschs. The 3.5mm jack on the rear is a Sub Out on one channel only.
