I am also waiting for a review on this Zeus.

I have had the Zeus for about 5 months now. It has all the power one would need and offers you the flexibility between triode and ultra linear (which I tend to prefer in most cases)as well.
The sound is less "tubey" than you may imagine, given the grip that the amp provides.
I can only provide comparisons. The top is certainly less grainy than my Plinius amps, the midrange excellent - and the bass really is so dependent on your speakers and the room as for me to offer any comment would be useless.
I use KT88s - am not sure what they come with standard and also have changed the input tubes.
I use an Audio Aero CD player running directly into them.
Just a suggestion - go to Audiocircle.com and check out the Regional Circle's NY Audio Rave group. Ask Richard (bugleboy) how he likes the amp.
As you can see from the pictures on the "Rave Meet" thread, Richard has 2 outstanding systems. He can certainly tell you how this amp (damn, looks more like a server) stacks up against some other really nice stuff.
