tough call, both are good systems. I own the M1's so I am familiar with their sound, and the Supersats are very good too.
The Supersats have slightly better dynamics but are overall less neutral than the Millenias, they have a slightly warmer sound and they have superior detail owing their their unique tweeter without sounding harsh or too hot. I enjoyed my audition when I heard them, they sounded more expensive than they are. I really like that they have a very transparent sound to them (lots of detail, don't sound congested), they sounded a lot like their big brother speakers, very effortless sounding (as long as you don't push them too hard)
However, the one things I don't like about them, they start to roll off around 150Hz according to the measurements at hometheater.com, and that means you should cross them over at a very high 160-180Hz, which is in the range where bass starts to be localizable. Make sure the sub is up to snuff....this is not a problem if you match them with a good small sealed sub like an SVS SB12 which comfortably extends up to 200Hz.
