Meetings suck because we always have to say everything twice, yelling the second time.

Please help me find the best telephone conferencing hardware for our conference room.

We have regular meetings in our conference room at a long rectangular table, about 12 people in the room and 3-5 offsite any given week. We currently use ReadyTalk to dial everyone in, and use one of those three-pronged speaker-phone space-pod-looking things, sitting in the middle of the table. (Looks kinda like this
.) But inevitably, the people on either of the far ends of the table have to shout in order to be heard, and even then, the remote folks usually can't hear them.
Is there a really good solution for this? Has speakerphone technology significantly improved in the last couple of years, to the point that simply buying a new tabletop unit would help? Or do we need to look at some other solution entirely?
