Fatmarley, your attenuator is a little on the high side and your amp input z is a bit low but there's no harm in giving it a go, it won't damage the amp. I'm sure the results will be ok if not optimum, just keep the lead between attenuator and amp short.

I had no idea Naim amps were so sensitive to speaker cable length, must be a design 'feature'

It seems Naim amps rely on having the 'right' cable attached to guarantee stability. There's some discussion of it here:
