I have heard the 750 matched with a beefy Mac tube amp.The active mode sounded ok,the passive mode dry amd uninvolving.I would match the 750 with a C.J-55.The 750 needs all the liquidity it can get from an amp.Its just too dry.As far as the Aleph-3 as a match,maybe so but not in the passive mode.You would never get enough volumn and dynamics.The Alepth-3 needs more than unity gain.
I've used the gfp with Sonic Frontiers, AR and mccormack amps. I didn't think it mated well with the AR amplifier. There was quite a difference in sound quality using the preamp verses the CD direct. I recently put one together with the mccormack and find that the system actually sounds better with the preamp (in passive). The active mode isn't bad either, but does lose a little detail. I find that my tuner doesn't have enough oomph (how do you spell oomph?) to drive the passive mode well.
