This is typical shielded audio cable which I’m supposed to use with micro-fit molex connector. The problem with that cable is that the ground cable/the shield is not insulated and I found it very difficult and messy to crimp it and use it with the micro-fit molex connector. Any ideas how this should be done properly?

By the way, maybe there is a different type of cable which would have 8 wires and would be suitable for everything the power, audio analog and digital signals and would be suitable for use with micro-fit molex connectors, so I don't have to use different types of cables?

One approach would be to solder a more manageable size wire to the shield. Then cover all the messy bare wire, including the solder join, with heat-shrink tubing.
