You could just plug a mono 1/8" jack into the stereo line-in.
The mike will be on the left channel (tip) and the jack shaft will
ground the normal right channel (ring) input. By using the dual
mono to stereo, the right channel line-in is connected to an
"antenna" that could cause some noise (but it probably shouldn't
be a problem).
