in my opinion :
they both will do the job fine ....
the 701 is more solid, and the spindlebearing is never a issue ..
unfortanaly i con not say the same for the 5000
also the tonearm of the 701 has a more generiek type of tonearm..
if I had to make a choise, i would go for the 701 ..
in my humble opinion, the 601 ist the most workable of all Duals. It has excellent performance and very solid workmanship. In comparison to the mechanically similar 701 the 601 has belt drive and herewith NO delicate electronics.
I consider the 1019 and the 1209 (both idler wheel drive) the most beautiful models.
Insider's tips are the 1237 and 1239, small but very well-crafted belt drive turntables with astonishing accurate surface feel! The tonearm construction is as good as the 601/701's
