Good to see the pics, Kevin! Are those modded Spatia links between amp and speaker? (Banana plug > spade?)

No. They are DIY speaker links made by my own fair hands.

It sounds great. Just missing the Majestic, or the Aria.

Yes they look very professional!
 
Whilst accepting that speaker mounting is recommended, and this is pretty close to being an active speaker, I would always be a little mindful that the 'Priorius' is not picking uop vibration, I hafe found that solid state amps to sound 'different' depending on how they are supported, and can only conclude that vibrations in or draining out of the amp are the route cause.  Using my logic the speaker may be the more vibrartion prone source possible?
 
Whilst the proprius is seeing good reviews and from feedback punches above its weight is it possible to bi-amp/stack them? 
 
Kind regards

Perhaps I'm unduly sceptical, but I think that if a component is affected by vibration, it is a matter of poor design that necessitates improvements being made by special isolation methods.
In the case of the Proprius, I would be confident that as it has been designed to be used in this manner it will not suffer performance degradation.
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.
