    Did anybody try to mix B&W with nOrh? Currently I have b&w 603's. I am thinking about buying a pair of nOrh 4.0 for rear. I am also considering b&w 601's or 303's or axiom or paradigm atom or other unexpensive good speakers. Any suggestions? I live in a small apartment room. I don't need to play loud.

    General theory suggests you try to stay with the same brand and series for matching sonics where ever possible.

    John,
    I agree with Russ on this. If possible, try to get all 5 speakers voiced the same. The best bet for this is to use the same brand (or better yet, same drivers) all around. Of course, you knew this already, as this was implied in your original post. :)
    My opinion on the nOrh's is well-known, as I own many of their speakers, and I regard them as a VERY good value. Currently, you can get a pair of the wood 4.0's from nOrh for only $300 shipped. For the quality, that's extremely inexpensive. How about this: Buy a pair of wood 4.0's for $300, and if they don't match up well as rear speakers, maybe you could use them elsewhere in your house (bedroom system, connect to a different TV, office system, etc). If you can't afford to use the nOrh's elsewhere if they don't work out, follow Russ' advice and get something similar to what you already have (if you can afford it).
    Have fun!
    John

    JohnZ,
    I'm a B&W man myself. I'm currently using crummy speakers in the rear 'cause I don't watch movies much and don't want to shell out the cash right now. I have 602s in the front.
    I would recommend getting the 601s for the rear. At $300 a pair, they're affordable, excellent quality, and I imagine would match up nicely with the 603s.
