The NIC carries the Mic signals, on the emate at least for sure, I
suspect it does on the MP2000/2100 as well. The Serial port DOES NOT.

That is why when Robert asked about a mic in for SER-001 I suggested it
was a new idea and a new driver would also be needed.

There is no "mic in" on the old school mac style serial port, but it
is conceivable to make a mic that converts its data stream to a serial
one. Sort of like all the USB audio products do on newer machines. It
is a bit far fetched though.
