Quartz Crystals Impedance Measurements: which approach is best??

Hi all,
i'm currently studying the impedance behavior of some gold (or platinum) plated quartz crystals which frequency ranges from 5 to 10 MHz.
In the past i used for this purpose an old HP 4192A but data acquisition was a lot complicated and the acquisition time for each scan was too low for my purposes.

Accordingly, I have recently purchased an E5061B Network Analyzer with the following option (apart the hard disk): a) E5061B-3L5 LF-RF network analyzer with DC bias source, -1E5 high stability timebase and -005 impedance analysis.

Till now i'm using the gain-phase serie-thru approach to measure the impedance of this DUT but i'm unsure is the best approach.
Indeed, there are other like the S1 series series-thru or reflection as well as the shunt-thru ones?

Can someone recommend the best approach for my DUT?

Thank so much in advance.
