Hey, folks. A "line-level mic" is an oxymoron. There is no such animal.
A mic that needs power is a condenser mic, and if it is powered from the
Mac, it is called "phantom powered". These will output a slightly higher
level signal in db, but not up to line level. I suspect the problem is,
as was suggested, the connector arrangement.
