RE: 3rd party speaker cable for naim nait 2?

I would suggest trying something like the linked Van Damme cable ( UK website but there is a USA distributor, see below). Van Damme make superb cables which are much used in the pro studio world ( not just a claim but actually true for once- users include Abbey Road and the BBC).

I cannot find the electrical specification for inductance which is the important one given the role of substituting for a Naim cable when used with a Naim amp ( see the rest of the thread for the reason). However the construction type and the low capacitance figure ( Inductance and capacitance are usually trade offs against each other) suggest it will be OK. You could always check with the US distributors:


It should meet your requirement for cost ( should be well under $10/metre unterminated) . However flexibility is another matter as spaced conductors are likely to provide the solution for the high inductance needed so as not to place your amp's stability in the danger area.
