Default Versatile welder

After getting my Lincoln PM255 stolen, I am in search of a new and completely versatile machine. I am not sure whether I want to buy another one, insurance did reimburse though. I have a little Hobart and an older Thunderbolt AC/DC. The only thing that didn't get stolen was my Prince Spool Gun and some various stuff(which I will sell soon). Anyway, what are people's thoughts on the T/A Prowave 185 and the Miller Dynasty 200DX. Where is the T/A built? I like the idea of the Dynasty being built in the US, but the cost is substantial. Where are some thoughts on the two? Thanks.

Both are AC/DC tig machines, and either one of them plus a decent sized mig welder, really is a smart play for a shop welding setup- IF versatility is the objective.

The thermal arc package of: Prowave 185 + thermal arc 251 seems to offer the most for the least bucks up front.
