Need a Amp with Volume Control

I have hooked up my Apple TV via HDMI to my Sony TV and now want to use the analog audio out of the TV to connect an amp for my speakers.

Obviously I can't control the audio out volume on the Sony TV (the TV has no headphone plugs), and I also can't control it on the Apple I need a amp with either front volume control or even better a simple remote.

Any recommendations for a used amp <400$?

Any other setup idea's are welcome too :)

Get a Denon A/V receiver for under $400
Have a look at this.

Most Sony TV's have a selectable fixed/variable analog audio out. What is the model number of the TV?
Thanks for the answers.

TV is a Sony KDL 40S-4100. I looked at the backplate and manual and couldn't find anything :(
Your TV has fixed, variable and Toslink outputs on the back of it. You may have to turn those features on using the on screen menus in order for them to work.

As I said "most Sony TV's", however the KDL-S4100 has only fixed analog audio out and digital audio out. Therefore, you are correct with your original question. If you use the analog audio out, a NAD C 316BEE should work well unless you have very inefficient speakers.
Where did you get this info from?

According to the manual ( the output volume is fix.

I also couldn't find any setting in the menu to change that :(

Please let me know if I'm missing something
I just did a search for your model tv and found a picture of the rear panel. It showed fixed, variable and toslink. I'm pretty sure its the right model but here's a link to the picture.

Zd542 is wrong, even the picture he provided in a search shows only "fix". Also, the manual states fixed with no option to change.
Sorry for trying to help.

Zd, sorry for being so blunt with my post, but when you keep providing the same incorrect information, it is definitely not helpful.
