While the Incognito Rega RB300 is an excellent arm, it's not in the same league as the DV505. IMHO a major upgrade.

It will "work" with any turntable. The only issue would be its mass; it is a relatively heavy construction. (I am not referring to "effective mass"; I am referring only to the total weight of the entire assembly.) There could be some issues with spring-suspended turntables.
DV505 is otherwise a great tonearm.
Czarivey...one of my tables happens to be an Oracle Delphi
MKIV with a Zeta (van den hul) arm, which is pretty heavy.
I had to replace the springs on that table. Oracle makes
several different springs that are color coded and has a
list that lets you know which ones to use. I would really
recommend either talking to your dealer or send Michell an
e-mail and inquire. Lewm is right.
According to the Vinyl Engine the DV505 weighs 1250g.
That thing is realy heavy.
Thanks for thoughtful responses. I've mailed to Michell, but according to the bottom of their page, they'll respond only first week of August.
Michell as you all may know has Orbe springs to handle the excessive weight of massive Orbe platter and that I believe they will work with DV505 arm.
I don't know what league this arm belongs to, but tend to believe that it's flagship of all arms on today's market and certainly last and final analogue upgrade armwise.
