How Do You Record Intercom 'Audio Quality'?

A question for the intergrators, demo engineers, booth people, and tech types: How do you capture 'audio quality', or 'quality audio' to share with your clients?

For example:

In person, or firsthand, you have the full benefit of hearing sound from the source like a speaker, intercom, or horn.

However, once that sound is recorded it is processed again/biased by the microphone collecting it. The resulting recording may sound similar to what is heard at the source, but it is often different in volumes and at high/low and background noise ranges.

Internally, we have discussed this scenario for use in testing. What do you recommend? Do we invest in specialty microphones? Or is there a quick/easy workaround you use?
