Thoose resistors run hot in this amp Its common.

Set your meter to ohms and measure across the resistors and post the results

What i found with theese amps is thoose resistors you have pictured fail. Also the 2 switches usually get dirty and need to be cleaned. And sometimes you get problems with the driver boards for the outputs.

If i were you Id buy the amp. They are easy to work on and the parts arent very expensive.

It might just be the resistor that is bad in it.
