    Several of the devices on this page should work.

    Just noticed one of the comments about the iLuv USB Audio Adapter if it is all of any concern:

    Robot Check

    I think I would be inclined to look for a used Griffith iMic. They worked well, and I assume would still work with the latest Macs and their OS.
    But this looks like a good modern alternative that is available from the URL above or here that supports stereo:

    PS: Look for the last Griffith iMic model that had some improvements in their switch, but even the previous model works well if you go that route.

    Thanks for replying. I am still waiting for info from local apple stores. In the meantime, the way the External Microphone option comes and goes might mean a bad connection in the 3mm jack. I will keep trying the 3 ring plug cord and if looks like a connection problem will return the macbook for service.

    Good luck with that since they're all closed until the 27th of March. Use the Apple Chat line instead as that's still available as far as we know.

    Thanks. I'm waiting on recommendations on the devices you suggest from local Apple suppliers. Also, today have asked a supplier via amazon.ca about their product to find if it can be used with line-out from my stereo amp. It is a Syba external USB Stereo Sound Adapter for Windows, Mac. PS. My Apple supplier assures me that I must input the audio signal using the USB port, not the 3.5mm jack.

    I must admit that I don't really know, But I would suspect that one would not be able to get True Stereo sound with such an adapter:
