I am thinking of trying one as well, so I'd also like to hear opinions.

I've had one for several years and am very pleased with it. The remote works well from about 25-30 ft. and has volume, balance, mute, power, and input controls. My Zephyr was factory built and has one set RCA inputs and one set of RCA outputs. I've A/B'd it with a Bottlehead Extended Foreply III active tube pre and it was hard to determine a difference between the two! The Zephyr was a bit more defined/precise but the Foreplay had a somewhat deeper soundstage and could achieve a higher gain. Speaks very well for the Bottlehead.
