As usual-it depends.

Sometimes using a boundary mic is a nightmare.

Sometimes they get covered up by a Bible, notes, banners etc.

If the talker is flipping pages in a Bible, this can get quite loud.

A boundary mic is good for wide area pickup and less fluctuation of levels, but I have found as a general rule, a condenser on a goodneck is the best way.

Depending on how much the people move around, an omni may be a better choice-or not.

Some people like to stand beside the pulpit and talk.  A regular cardioid is not a good choice in this case.

Would like to try one but at $500, might be a tough sell to the client.
The PCC 160 has always interested me for "tiuch free" lectern use.
It was sticker shock to my client until they were floored by the off-axis response (they were using Shure MX cardioid gooseneck)

We had the PCC 160 there -- it was the next best thing to the Beyer.  They liked it, but it was picking up too much of the piano close by.

They didn't care for the AT 871R and Shure MX393 or Beta 91.

I carry a couple of MPR 210 in inventory for those VERY RARE occasions I need to use them at some corpy events.  Like Ivan said, 99% it's a gooseneck on a podium for me.  Feel free to PM me if you want to test it.

Best,
John R.
