What affordable equipment could I buy to have a simple, professional-sounding conversational podcast?

My podcast usual has a simple format: two people talking to each other at a table about a subject. Sometimes we bring in one or even two other guests.
So basically, it's an interview format.
I would like to invest between $100-$200 in whatever I need for 1-3 (and if possible, 4) people to sit around a table and talk. Right now, we just plug two headsets into my computer via a headphone splitter. It works fine but sounds kinda lame and feels iffy.
It seems like the Zoom H2 might be my best bet, but the concern is that it sounds too "airy" when it's set in the middle of the table with 2-4 voices around it.
Anyone have any other insight into this?
