I think someone should remove pictures 1, 8, 9, 10 and 11, because they belong to model AU190, not BT245

Hallo Christian,
in cases like these, please send a personal email message to one of the picture administrators (Names can be found here), he will move the images to the correct models.

Kind regards from Switzerland Martin Boesch

Pictures have been moved now and remarks added for both models, concerning speaker grille, cabinet and knobs.

Thanks for the hint!
