I wish to record a low level stereo signal from the aux output of a stereo tuner using my Thinkpad. The T460s has no input plug for a mic or other audio device. Is there an alternative? Is there any HDMI or USB adapter that will accomplish this task? Thanks.

Welcome to the Community
Google "external sound card" and "Line In" with quotes around them and you'll get a zillion hits for USB devices. Some are better than others. There are cheapo dongles that do a passable job all the way up to professional ones with XLR inputs. (The ThinkPad's HDMI connecction is outgoing only)
Since you said "tuner," I imagine you're recording off of the radio. Unless you plan to use an HD radio, any of the less-expensive models should do a good job. Just make sure you get one with the jack pack you need that'll work with the OS and recording you're using.

The T460s has no input plug for a mic or other audio device.
For the record, and for other readers of this thread: the T460s does have a mic/audio input. It's part of the combo (headset) jack. Access for anything other than a headset requires a mic/headphone splitter cable.
Mono, so it doesn't help in this application, but it is there.
