Problem here is that -y affect the last specified input or output.
In this case you're trying to set the starting offset for /dev/dsp.
So the correct command-line would be:
ecasound -i /spare/mp3/file1.mp3 -y:170.5 -o /dev/dsp -t:240.8 -tl

This doesn't work either as setpos affects the global position
(all input and output objects). So instead of setpos, you should
use aio-setpos (audio object specific setpos).
