Normal voip phones will work.
Hello all, I thought it wise to turn to your group expertise in this.
I've been looking into speakerphone-type products lately for use primarily over Skype, but it's also handy if they work with plain old telephones too.
This is for roleplay - essnetially the product needs to sit on a table, and be able to pick up four to five people, all of whom are sitting closely around a dining room table, and channel that audio to me. It's helpful if there's not too much audio confusion if more than one person speaks at a time. It also needs to be a speaker so they can hear me from my end. I'm using Skype, but it's important that the product can use plain telephone service too as a backup.
I've been looking at this product, the Phoenix DUET Executive Speakerphone, http://assets.twacomm.com/assets/pdf/28534.pdf but I've been unable to find an independent review of it, so I thought I might ask you fine people if anyone had either tried this product, or (perhaps more likely) had an alternative suggestion for a product that could act as a speakerphone, over VOIP and telephone.
My budget for this is $200 - $300, and it's helpful if the product is available in Canada, though not strictly required.
As always, thank you for your opinion!
