Just got the Norh 5.1's today. They are replacing the Polk Lsi7's on my 2-channel system (Bada tube CD player, Odyssey Stratos amp, Musical Fidelity A3cr pre-amp, and an Onix Rocket UFW-10 sub). I purchased these strictly for aesthetic reasons. My wife wanted to get them to match the decor in the living room.
First, let me say that these speakers are gorgeous. I got the ones made from wood, not marble. The wood has a very high polished shine to them. They have a very large port on the back of the drum-style speaker. If you look inside, you can see parts of the crossover and the back of the driver. It's much lighter in weight than I anticipated. They were very well packed and arrived in three days from Thailand (but took 7 weeks to make!).
How do they sound, you ask? Well, right out of the box they sound just as good as the Lsi7's. There are some subtle differences, of course. The Norhs produce a wider soundstage and are a slightly more laid back, although the bass is a bit on the weak side. These issues may be resolved during break-in. So far, I am very pleased, and my wife is happy.
Here's a pic of them I pulled off their website:
