    That non-metered ESS amp sort of reminds me of a Bose amp!

    The Bose amp I think you're thinking of has nicer, bigger meters, that was what I thought as well about the faceplate, very close.

    About the 10 ohm 2 watt resistor; this is fairly standard practice. The resistor is in parallel with a small inductor, so for audio frequencies, the resistor is short circuited. At very high frequencies (below AM radio) the 10 ohm resistor acts as a load. The circuit helps keep the amp stable into electrostats.
