I know of no GNT in "koine" (erasmian) pronunciation, but --

I have the Zodhiates tapes too, and agree that the pronunciation isn't that 
hard to get used to.  And I listen to Randall Buth's pronunciation some, on 
his delightful "conversational biblical Greek" course CDs, but in the 
absence of extended listening opportunities with actual GNT passages, I've 
not picked it up enough to speak it.  In my teaching I still use Erasmian 
as it seems to be the de facto standard around the US academic 
circuit.  Most important thing to me is that my students be able to read NT 
Greek and discuss it with others now living!

One place to hear the GNT in Erasmian pronunciation is Marilyn Phemister's 


You can listen online, download the entire GNT or whatever part you want, 
or she'll send you CDs for not much money.  Only downside is that she's 
recorded the Westcott-Hort text rather than UBS, for copyright reasons.
