Question Input Audio G5 1.6 GHz Low or None

With my PPC G5 the microphones audio is either too low or none existant. I have gone into system preferences and set the input audio to the max with no change. Does the G5 have a special audio input impedance or is there another setting I should investigate? The output analog audio is working 100%.
Best Regards, Keith

I believe the G5s are the same as the newer macs where you need a line level microphone.

You can get a new mic or a mac compatible usb sound card (mine was 16 bucks!) to solve that.
