Hi Andrew

Thank you so much for your quick reply! As my PC has a separate headphone socket I’m assuming the mic input (3.5mm) is TRS.

Following your advice, I’ve ordered the USB audio adaptor and it should be here tomorrow.

Many thanks – much appreciated!

Phil

For what it's worth...

My PC has TWO mic input sockets.

If I plug into the one on the front of the computer (near the power button) the mic hums.

If I plug into the one on the BACK of the computer, I don't get any hum.

Just something to try out if you have a mic socket on the back of your computer.
