Default 1995 Audi 90 Quattro - Radio dead?

I've been rebuilding a 1995 Audi 90 Quattro that was involved in a front end collision. The actual repair work is going excellent and I'm very pleased with my purchase so far. All of the electronics appear to work flawlessly and as new, except the radio. The radio appears to be completely dead, no security light, no prompt to enter a code, no nothing. I've checked all the fuses, everything looks good. Every other electrical system works that I've tested (all besides the heated seats and the rear window defrost). The battery has been dead and no longer holds a charge, but jumping it and letting the alternator do all the work produces the same results. Help! I need my tunes! If the radio is actually dead then as far replacements go, I had heard something about the rear speakers are un-amped and therefore need a compatible deck. I'm not sure.

Any help is appreciated, I'd love to have some tunes when I take my baby out on the road for the first time!

aluminum, since we have the same ride, we may be talking a bit. I replaced my unit as I wanted to play cds and mp3s! I got a sony deck that matched the red interior lights. man it is perfect as far as blending in, rather than have blinding blue or green deck lights (crazy). anyway, i recommend replacing the deck, and getting new speakers. the only thing is you need an amp, and maybe a sub if you really cherish your sound. i bought infinity 42.5 and 52.5's. they friggin suck plus i have no amp. dont make the same mistake i made. do it right or dont waste your time/money.
