Great Update in the new office. Sound is a little off but good stuff as always.
 
Mic type is usually one of the first steps. Condensor mics that do not have a narrow sweet spot will usually do this. You want a mic with a narrow sweet spot for speaking into in cases like this. 

You can also make a foam "box" that has the side near you open, and set your mic (or laptop if that's what you're using) into it, so that your voice coming in will be focused and it will pick up less bounce off the walls. You want egg-crate foam which isn't overly expensive. 
 
So I use the Sony HDR-XR200V camera and would prefer to improve the audio source there and not have two inputs (i.e. one for video and one for audio).  Recommendations?
 
With something like that, I'd go ahead and try the foam-box approach Barry. It's a cheap solution if it works for you. 
 
Yeah +Barry Schwartz this is common in many rooms/offices due to the walls themselves. Every room has different natural acoustics. I know some podcasters that have resorted to recording their podcast in their walkin closet because their main rooms echo and the closet has clothing soaking up the echo. Try another room in the office.
 
A mic with a narrow sweet spot will definitely help as will the foam box even with your current mic. 
 
I use sennheiser G2 wireless mics for my camera and have had good luck in rooms such as yours... You can adjust the settings from the receiver and find tune it with a pair of head phones. You are going to have to test things out unless you want to sound proof the office room and that can get expensive. 
 
What software are you using to produce the videos? You maybe able to get a filter plugin to help reduce that as well.
