I tried between Exposure and ATC. It sounded like ‘aaahhhh’ as the cable is PITA; rigid like wire clothes hanger. Otherwise speakers sounded fantastic, no complain

Unless your amp needs the extra inductance for stability, I wouldn't. The super old black version was a bit heavy and wooly sounding to me on a non-Naim system.

Less is more !

Naca5 is a low inductance and capacitance cable for stability in naim amps.
