I have a player that I allowed to use spheres of power, but real life issues came up before they could start play. When they finally join, I will see how they work out.

From what I have read about the mechanics, it looks like everyone will need access to the Spheres of Power for the balance.

People I know who use Spheres of Power really like it. But I've been burned with incorporating secondary magic systems. Like JJ says, the balance is only really better if everyone is using the same system. But if you have a book-of-9-swords monk, and a psion, and a warlock, and a wizard all in the same party... game balance tends to come apart quickly because they're mostly balanced to exist with like elements. The more mixing you do, the more things can fall apart.
