    Finding one of those dynamic microphones

    Dex (or anyone else with the answer),

    Any idea where I could get one of those "dynamic" microphones? When I go look for them at Circuit City or WalMart or BestBuy, they all say electret, and if they don't say that, they don't say anything about them being dynamic--if you could point me at a vendor you think would work, that'd be well-appreciated.

    I also found these two mp3car postings:

    It appears from this discussion that some people were able to get sound to work with their FV24 or FV25 boards by rewiring the mini jack somehow. Didn't really understand it. It looked to me like I needed to amplify the signal from the mic into the line in--apparently that's what goes in that bottom mini jack on a shuttle FV25.

    These are the posts:

    ATTN: FV24 owners: How to wire a microphone

    and

    FV24 (any mobo, really) "line in" same as "mic"?

    Can anyone with experience shed more light on this?

    best,

    I just went through this whole situation about a month ago....
    If you have the manual of the board, it will point to five pins...
    well that is what you are going to have to make a connection to. Because on the FV/25 on the back of the mother board is only speaker out and LINE IN....NOT MIC. IN... That's where it gets a little tricky, this is what I did...I called shuttle and told them that i the other cable that I had was defective and didn't work, and asked is I could buy a new one...they said they don't sell them, I asked how could we resolve the situation, he told me he would find one and send it out and he did....Well after he sent it out I was all ready to hook it up....When I got it, it didn't look like I expected, both sides of the cable looked the same (five female pin connection). so I thought, I'm going to have to hack something together, I cut that baby in have, and bought some mini jack recepticals from rat shack and soldered them up.
    Now I have the other half of the cable...if you would like I will solder it up and send it out to you...for a small fee, or you can try your hand at it too...

    Dicky Barrett,
    Thanks for the info. No need to send the soldered up jigger. I'll find a way to use the line in.
    All I can say is... MAN!

    The audio headers on the FV24,25 mobo are for headphone out and Mic in. To my experience, the headphone out on the mobo's audio header sounds much cleaner and more bass than the line out at the rear of the board. This is what I use to connect to my stereo's AUX in. The Mic in shares the same ground as the headphone jack.

    1 L speaker out
    2 R speaker out
    3 AGRD
    4 MIC_VCC
    5 MIC_IN

    Pin 1 is the pin closest to the PCI slot.

    I'm pretty sure you are not going to be able to use the line in...I have not heard of anyone using it.

    Question

    Huh?

    Then what's the line in for if not to send sound into your computer?

    I think...and I could be totally wrong....anything else such as a tape, video, cd, dvd player...has (I think) some type of power line attached to the output...most mics do not...
    but then again, I could be wrong...
    I just haven't heard of anyone using a mic on the "Line in"

    good luck
