My experience on dynasties is limited, but i have used an aerowave on aluminum, I was really impressed with the quality of welds it produced and the adjustability of the machine, I guess the question you should really be asking yourself is wich welder would better suit my needs. In terms of cost, usage etc, Please dont get caught up in the hype of inverters are all you need to be a good welder, It is skill that matters not the machine, And if one doesnt understand the basic principles of welders such as frequency, balance amps positve and negative, these machines can be difficult to set up. And may be better of with plain old sqarewave technology. I would of loved to have a dynasty or aerowave but i got my 350lx used at a steal, and it does everything i need it too. If you have the cash to burn it is a very hard question, but if not i recommend looking around for the best welder to meet your requirements.

Aerowave was the **** he wouldn't be selling the one in the link.. Clearly something is better...
I own a Dynasty 350 and it's the best TIG welder made in my opinion after 30 years TIG welding. It does it all and best of all it does it all CHEAPLY !! It don't need Helium and it sips power like a humming bird! What more can you ask for?

Aerowave can't give the 350 a run for it's money.. The Dynasty has so much going for it by today's standards. It operates so cheap and performs like a champ ! It honestly has NO drawbacks! A clear winner

Aerowave I would be selling it as well.... Well maybe not. I have always wanted an aerowave. Seems like the coolest tig ever made. I can picture one just glistening in the corner in all its glory. But from a business stand point it would probably be wise to sell while it still works and you can get top dollar.

I seen this yesterday and remembered this thread.... He covers the Aerowave comparison very well..
That about covers the Aerowave debate! When the best TIG welder walking talks about TIG welding and is willing to give away free advice one should listen. I know I did and still do.

HHHHMMMmmmm... Maybe I will keep and use my Dynasty 350 Tigrunner and Dynasty 200DX.... without too much undue guilt.....
Marcella's work is truly elevated to an artform and he surely explains why the Dynasty is a superior machine..... but in my estimation... people will just not "get it" until they use one for a while..... makes me smile each time......

**** I would gladly PAY Marcella for the privileged to ask him 20 questions ! I was also impressed with his remark that he don't use any aid from the machines pulse cycles ETC.. Says he wants 100% control over the puddle 100% of the time! Makes me feel better knowing that's also the way I do it. I realize the pulser can be an advantage but I've found it really works best for repetitive procedures and seldom do I have the same situation twice on any part. As a small funny note added in here........ Over at the Everlast forum their tech adviser openly stated on more than one occasion ------------------> Real welders don't use foot pedals !!! It's was along about that point that I was without doubt he is a fool! I guess Marcella is just a rookie then? Just think how good he'll be when he learns what he's doing... LOL
