on wax

On a phonograph record. "Wax" is a reference to the long-obsolete practice of making recordings on wax cylinders. I've always been told music sounds better on wax, but I honestly can't hear one bit of difference. More and more musicians are choosing to release their albums on wax alongside digital formats.
