I assume that you are restricting yourself to these small speakers for a reason.
I would recommend the following:
Skip the MilleniaSub, it’s just too expensive for what it offers. Same with the Ultracube, too expensive.
I’d recommend the MilleniaOne 5.0 set with a SVS SB12NSD or the newer SB1000. A number of us on this forum are running the MilleniaOne with the SB12 and they work very well together. The MilleniaOne are some of the best small satellites I’ve heard in a long time, offering excellent tonality and accuracy in a small speaker. If you go with a SVS sub, you can get much of the same performance as the more expensive Paradigm subs.
KEF makes decent stuff but I can’t comment on it since I haven’t heard it.
I wouldn’t recommend the Motion 4, they are pretty much inferior to the Millenia…they are a little ragged sounding and are very constricted in the upper bass region.
Receiver, Either should be fine.
