I had a similar problem.  I have two 91 quattros with the same
model Delta Bose radio.  On/off knob functionality was
intermittent plus in my case the preset select buttons were not
working properly.  In the case of the buttons, I would describe
the problem as bad electrical contact as well as bad return
spring function.  Both problems are fixable and you can avoid
worrying about a correct fit replacement [new aftermarket]
version.  The cost per radio was about $175 two years ago.  I
UPS'd both of mine to:
Midwest Electronics
3230 Mannheim rd
Franklin park IL 60131
Brett at (800) 562-5978 x10
Or brett at midwestelectronics.com

My preference was to keep the Audi original throughout, for
whatever that is worth, or just me being too afraid to take
chances with a replacement that I would not be happy with.  A CD
player for me is not a biggie.
