just put an air cored inductor on the output of the amplifier.

The cable is simply being relied on to substitute for an output coil. Capacitance is not a necessary part of an output coil network but it exists in the cable nonetheless, so it is included in the cable specification. Don't be distracted by trying to match all the cable specs, since it's the total inductance that is the essential requirement here.

So as Bigun just suggested, fit a small coil, like 2uH, in series with your + output leads and most cable concerns will vanish - simple as that. If you prefer to follow all Naim recommendations to the letter, then buy their recommended cable as a consumer instead. I think a DIY would have more urgent problems with the components in their parts kit though

For curiosity, you can measure the small cable inductance and capacitance with one of several affordable LC meters like the LC200A but the real test is stability (no ringing) of the amplifier when driving the speakers. You'll very likely need a 'scope for that. Otherwise, the R, L, C properties of copper twinflex are all determined by its basic cable geometry. i.e. the diameter of each wire bundle, the centre spacing and length - assuming all types have a common insulation like PVC.
If only I had listened....

I use cable whose strands are not turned, just pulled straight and no problem, I did not even check their capacitance and it's been working for two or three years
