Yes, the most important thing at any party is to leave with at least what
you came with! (unless you brought "refreshments") ;)

I think it will serve you well. There are not really any other preamplified
microphones out there in this price range that I can find. Your next
alternative for mic setup is build your own preamp or move up to
professional grade equipment. You aren't going to get away with spending
much less than $200 on pro type equipment. As Matthew pointed out, you can
use the Archos preamp with a better quality microphone in the future if you
want to upgrade your setup. Just remember if you choose a condenser type
mic, it will need a battery either built in or inline, in addition to using
the preamp. (the ones without, expect to be powered by what they are plugged
into and the Archos preamp won't do this)
