    I got a new dual 2.0 g5 and its working great.

    The only trouble i have currently is that there doesn't seem to be any way to get a microphone to work with the machine.

    I checked everywhere if the line in is maybe muted but nothing seems to be wrong. I tryed several different mics on the g5 and none worked at all.
    When i'm in preferences -> Sound -> Input i cannot get the bars to fill up even if i shrike in the mic.

    Am i missing something obvious or is my line in broken ?

    the great OKLAHOMA....
    unfortunatly...it is a line-in meaning, it is not preamped. you have to amp it yourself...(buy a usb mike and save your self trouble.)
