Are Atomic regs worth the money?

Because of my recent dissatisfaction with Scubapro I am at some point cosidering moving on to a different brand of regulator when the need arrises. I have a sneaking suspicion that somewhere in the near future my current regs are going to be obsolete and no longer serviceable since production of regs and parts has moved offshore. I was told by many that Scubapro has gone way down hill in almost all respects so I've decided not to re-up with that brand.

I've admired Atomic for years but never had a need to buy one since I already had regs that seemed to work fine.

If I do buy Atomic I would consider the Ti2 since they are very well made, corrosion free, light weight, and from what I understand one of the last companies to still be made entirely in USA. Correct me if I'm wrong on the last one.

I also hear that with the titanium model that if the reg is taken care of and cleaned properly service can be put off for up to 5 years. I always put the reg on a tank, pressurize it and then soak the the reg and tank together in a large wash tank. Afterwards I leave the tank on until the reg is dry then disassemble it.

Are Atomic products worth the money? especially the titanium model?
