Angry Stereo Issues with my 2002 745Li

Bimmer Community,

I've recently started experiencing troubles with the stereo system in my 2002 745Li. At first every now and then there would be a loud static sound coming out of my speakers when I tried to play a cd or listen to the radio. At first it would just go away in time or by turning the radio system on and off. Then it would go hours or a whole day without working. I could start the car the very next day and everything would be back to normal for a day...maybe two, maybe 3 days. The problem would eventually reoccur.
Fast forward 2 months and now the entertainment/nav system is working, there is no static anymore, but NO sound is coming out of the speakers at all. Whether you try to play a cd or the radio. Every now and then you hear the intended station or cd for about a 1 second then nothing.
Has anyone experienced the same problem or anything close??? If so, are there any fixes that I can try on my own???
I took the car to a shop today and they told me that my amp seems to be bad and that it would cost $1,250 for a new amp and $200 for them to install and program.....a total of $1,450 to hear music again.
