RE: how to get "Line IN" to work

From: Gary Wingert <Gary_Wingert_at_sonic.com>

This sounds exactly like the recent conversation on the list.

You need a preamp for the microphone - it's not hot enough
by itself to drive a line-level input. It works in your PC
because you probably have your microphone boost enabled and/or
your level is cranked high enough.
