I like that it has no external wall wart or transformer, and utilizes just a standard IEC power cord, unlike the TC Helicon unit which uses a very odd 40 something volt transformer in line with the power cord to power up. I also like that volume and tone controls are physical knobs versus the selected button and one main dial method of the TC Helicon unit. A word here about reliability: My TC Helicon suffered from random volume changes and also was never really easy to hear. I tried all kinds of settings and was not able to get enough volume out of it (a complaint by a few others also-on other websites). This Mackie SRM 150 has none of those issues and has been rock solid from day one and has plenty of volume for me.
Although I would have liked to have individual channel tone controls, the Fishman units that I use each provide plenty of adjustment and I simply use the mix D.I. outputs from the Fishman(s) running into the Mackie input to accurately hear what is being amplified. If you are expecting to use the SRM 150 as sort of a small mixer to output to a main PA then you will be disappointed in not having the individual tone controls.
This monitor seems a bit smaller and more compact than the TC Helicon but the mounting options are not as good since the TC unit was designed to very quickly and simply mount onto the shaft of a mic stand. Also, the Mackie monitor seems more beefy and dense than the TC monitor, giving the impression of higher quality although I'm sure this is just due to the power supply being incorporated within the case. The sound from the Mackie is very clear and clean and I think that anyone would be satisfied with it's performance for it's INTENDED PURPOSE. This unit does not have the headroom and frequency response to serve as any kind of main PA, but it should be loud and clear enough for a small group such as a family gathering in the living room or garage or something like that. The mic stand mounting options for the Mackie are not as quick and easy, with option one being between the stand and the arm, and option two being mounted directly to a dedicated stand via an adapter that screws onto the stand.
All in all, I highly recommended the Mackie SRM 150 to anyone for it's intended purpose.
Ultimately, I moved on to a different solution for the keyboard monitor.
That said, it turns out to be a great vocal monitor (small enough to fit right over the keyboard).
I would give it 5 stars, but my only complaint is the power, you have to crank all the way up to hear yourself in a typical rock band. If you play in a hard rock band, it may not be enough "umph".
If you play jazz or blues - then this is definitely the right monitor for you.

Avantages : léger, peu encombrant. Désavantage : manque de puissance. Pour $100. de plus, vous pouvez acheter un Mackie plus performant mais plus lourd et plus gros. Ce sont de bons appareils si on les compare aux autres et le rapport qualité/prix est excellent.
