There is absolutely nothing wrong with different surround speakers from the fronts, brand wise. Especially since you are using these for pretty much just home theater. I have listened to the Paradigm Studio 20's, as well as the SVS speakers. I personally liked the Ascends much more than the others. They threw up a better sound stage, were more detailed, and sounded more revealing than the others as well. I ended up purchasing the Sierra-1's. I actually enjoy my Definitive Technology set-up more than the Ascends, for home theater, but, the Ascends smoke the Def Techs for music listening. Hope this helps!
