I recently acquired some odd lengths of Madrigal Audio Labs (Levinson) HPC cable. They had Camac and mismatched RCA's on them which I removed and sold, but held onto the cable.
Now I want to make up some interconnects out of it.
What I noticed while removing the connectors was that somehow they had cut the shielding a few centimeters back from where the outer sheath ended. And they had filled the void with heatshrink over teflon tape to maintain a continuous diameter. So if you can picture the outer sheath lay over a few cm's of the heat shrink tubing. Made for a very clean termination.
Does anybody have any idea how they accomplished that neat little trick? I tried heating it up with a hair dryer, but could only peel the outer layer back a little bit. While it was warm I was able to "work" it back down the cable run a little more. But, that was so labor intensive I do not see it being viable for a commercial cable mfr.
