Need more info on the supporting components .
I have the De Capo's and love them , with tubes !
Auditioned them with a Cary SS with tubed buffer and CJ pre , didn't like them at all . They took on a whole different character with a Cary SLi-80 and Cayin A88-T , tubed integrateds . Same room , cables , source and session . YMMV .
Don't know the Aliente .
Good luck and , if possible , try before you buy .
