I bought one of these recently.  IMO, its a major upgrade over the 70D, which I bought, ran, and sold in a span of 48 hours. 

That said, I did a Comp last night between the 701D and the MixPre-6.  Absolutely stunned by the results. 

Besides its excellent sound quality, here are my likes when comparing the two:

1) I can run it with a small pocket-sized Anker battery.  In this case, the Powercore 13000.  Last night's record time was 4 hours 58 minutes, P48 on, and still had half-a-battery left.  WOW! 
2) No polywav file nonsense
3) I can turn off the Mix so it won't record the Mix files. 
4) One, big, scroll down menu.  Makes setup quicker.
5)  It has a "Hold" button

The 701D's sound quality is every bit as good as the MixPre-6's.

I could not agree more. It is a fantastic deck and sounds great. While it resembles the DR70D, it is a different machine with totally different firmware.
