[AG-TECH] use of polycom with AG

We often use the Polycom SoundStation in AG PIGs.  One caveat is you 
need to purchase their Video Interconnect box to connect the sound 
station to your sound card.  There also seems to be an impedance 
mismatch which requires that you keep your inpout levels very low, 
almost off.  Also, for the price I personally don't think the audio 
quality is very good.  Polycom's audio seems to be tuned for use over 
the phone which is much lower quality audio than the capabilities of AG.

My $0.02
