In any case it's a moot point because they are not in stock. Would mixing up with bookshelves on other brands be ok? I am not wedded to JBL.

You may consider going with four 580 for your surround and surround back positions. If your fortunate enough that they go on sale again for $329 each.
IMHO, for ME. Like I have expressed many times. Having matching tower speakers all the way around is something VERY special.
For ME, matching tower speakers are not something I would consider to replace in a couple years. A good set of speakers can easily go 20 plus years or more. IMHO, is worth the investment and enjoyment for how long they will last. If you can afford to do so. With my current speakers I will never replace them. They bring a HuGE
to my face every day.
If you are unable to get the 580. Due to availability or cost. You might want to consider the 530 for the surround and surround backs. I highly recommend keeping within the JBL 5 series of speakers. To match your existing 590 towers.
Good luck in your decision.
