-Shure MX418 microphones:​ Current technology, good conference/​lecturn microphones with a distance factor of 1.7 and a wide pickup area.  They also pick up a lot of side noise, which causes feedback, which can be compensated for by better placement to the readers. ​ Optimum placement would be "4 fingers"​ or about 2 to 3 inches. ​ These should be great microphones for the intended use, the only better options would be headset microphones or "​shotgun"​ (very directional) microphones.+Shure MX418 microphones:​ Current technology, good conference/​lecturn microphones with a distance factor of 1.7 (up to approx 1.7 feet) and a wide pickup area.  They also pick up a lot of side noise, which causes feedback, which can be compensated for by better placement to the readers. ​ Optimum placement would be "4 fingers"​ or about 2 to 3 inches. ​ These should be great microphones for the intended use, the only better options would be headset microphones or "​shotgun"​ (very directional) microphones.
  
 Bogen GS150 amplifier: An arcane piece of equipment that is underpowered for the current speakers, but does provide 70v audio out for the childrens room / downstairs (needed because of the distance to the speakers). ​ It does not have integral feedback suppression. ​ As a "​standard"​ piece of gear for audio installers these are still for about $450.00, mostly because they support both 70v and 8ohm speaker output (approx 150 watts max). Bogen GS150 amplifier: An arcane piece of equipment that is underpowered for the current speakers, but does provide 70v audio out for the childrens room / downstairs (needed because of the distance to the speakers). ​ It does not have integral feedback suppression. ​ As a "​standard"​ piece of gear for audio installers these are still for about $450.00, mostly because they support both 70v and 8ohm speaker output (approx 150 watts max).
