If you are fine with not using Rhythmbox, try Strawberry [1](a fork of 
Clementine [2](inspired by Amarok [3])).

In the settings select "Backend". Set Engine to "GStreamer" and Output 
to "Output to a JACK server". It will show up in the Graph of QJackctl 
as it's own node and you can route it as you wish.
