I use a TS9-DX (same basic specs as the TS9 but with 3 additional boosted modes). I think it's a killer pedal for solos--it can generate a significant amount of boost, and doesn't add too much color to the tone. I've had excellent luck using the TS9's with the lead channels on my amp. I rarely use it with the clean channel--it's a little gritty for my tastes, but I could probably dial it down a bit to something more subtle.
I used to use DS1's in both of my rigs, but I thought they colored the tone a little too much. Now I use TS9DX's in both rigs. I run mine with level, gain, and tone all set at 1:00. Of course, it will respond differently in front of dfferent amps--I use 'em with a Mesa Nomad 45 and Mesa Mark IV.
