Which is best decoder for tortoise points?

I want to use tortoise motors on a DCC O gauge layout I'm building. My question is which decoder I would be best to use with them. 9 points in total working with Gaugemaster Prodigy controller. The Lens LS 150 needs AC power, so I think that's ruled out. Other options seem to be SMD82 or DAC 10 or digitrax DS 44, a very basic one.

Anyone any experience with the combinations of any of the above?

Might be useful to check it out for those interested.

That's a good price if you're US side of the pond or somewhere that doesn't impose import duty and a service charge too.
But for UK buyers that's around £97.00 plus shipping costs plus import duty. Roughly around £120-£130ish mark. Which is about the same price as available in the UK e.g. A single unit is £12.65 from DCC Supplies, possibly cheaper of 12??
