My understanding is that a stereo microphone is comprised of two
microphones in a single unit. That's pretty black and white.

Why you would use such a device rather than recording with two discrete
microphones in an X-Y, ORTF, or MS (et al) configuration (but I read
there are single, MS recording units) I dunno.

Here are some edifying links:
