programming booster

I am looking for a recommendation for a programming booster to work with the Digitrax systems.
As we are all aware sound decoders take a lot more power to be programmed. I have Googled and found:
1) DCC Specialties PowerPax DCC Programming Booster with Power Supply
2) Digikeijs DR5033 Booster - Works W/ Digitrax
Any input would be helpful.

I use the Soundtraxx PTB-100 with my Digitrax system, with good results.

Scales Modeled: HO 1950s Southern Pacific in So. California.
I also use the Soundtraxx PTB-100 but the DCC Specialties PowerPax is also a very good unit.

Thank you for your response.

Does the PowerPax or the PTB-100 go:

Between the Digitrax PM-4 and the program track?
Or
Between the Digitrax DCS-200 Rail A/B leads and the program track?
Or
Between the Digitrax DCS-200 program A/B leads and the program track?
Or
Any of the above???

Thank you
