I'm getting ready to build my first real system and have decided to go active instead of passive—largely because of you all here, so thank you. (Btw, you can listen to my recent interview with Amir here).

I'm currently thinking of two RS1's. I rarely enjoy music that loud on speakers (only in headphones and at EDC :).
And I'm going to be doing a Genelec 8351B-based active monitor HiFi system, so I am more looking for clarity and range than crazy SPL.
