If you wanted your company to go public would you rather go via a SPAC or do it the old fashioned IPO way?

I feel like going the IPO route has a sense of trustworthiness or authenticity that SPACs don't seem to have earned yet, what do you guys think?

SPACS don't have to be audited as throughly as IPOs I believe? Feel like IPOs are solid companies which can afford to do things properly and SPACS are smaller companies which want to skirt around the outside of it to get in. Have more faith in IPOs than SPACS though IPOs cost much more to get into the market.
