Default CD Player with variable outputs

I'm looking for a CD (or DVD) player for an audio-only system. The player will feed directly into a power amp. Sound quality doesn't have to be stellar - it's for a non-audiophile's exercise room. Any suggestions of a readily available model, either new or used?

There are lots of player out there that have a built in volume control, probably too many to list. But anyway, I have a Yamaha CDC-655 CD changer that has this facility.

Just be aware that a lot of CD players such as the CD63 go back to maximum volume when powering on. Try and find one with a pot or doesn't default back to maximum volume.

Could save your speakers or ears.

Thats quite a bad characteristic, I could imagine being caught out by that. My Yamaha doesn't, it turns on to the same volume level as you left it.

Would be very easy to get caught.

All the Sonys and a Shanling I have all startup with the volume where you left it. All those have a pot. I did have a Sony that did it in the digital domain but can't remember if it defaulted back to maximum volume.
