I have an Aleph 3, and have used it with both Stealth Premier and Stealth Ultimate Ribbon speaker cables. I like the ribbons best, with my Quad ESL 63's, but the Premier is excellent and might do better with other speakers. I had MIT's top cables for five or six years, and now regret the money I spent (wasted) on them. I was able to make cables of my own, using Kimber AGSS and other decent wires, that were better. When I went back from homemade to my old MIT CVT Terminators, it was like throwing blankets over the speakers. That was 10 years ago, but I doubt it they're that much better now. Great marketing department, though.
Why a tube pre? The Alephs have a very low input impedence, making preamp-mating tricky. Pass Labs reports mixed results with the Audible Illusions Modulus 3. I punted by chasing a used Aleph P($1850), and string'em with fast Nordost Red Dawn IC and revII speaker cables. The Aleph P mates SUPERBLY with the Alwph amps, as you might expect. Good Luck
