    I think that for stereo (or multi-channel) input, you are going to need something more co$tly than consumer gear. There is a considerable amount of professional gear out there (my brother-in-law is a professional sound engineer who uses Linux almost exclusively), but it will cost you a lot more than $20USD for a set of decent mics.

    It can be purchased from Amazon.com and other sites for about $20-25USD. Generally it seems to go for around $21 and change.

    Ok. Missed that factor. I'll see what I can find for you. You may need to go to around $100 to get what you want/need.
