Subjectively, perhaps, but theoretically vinyl has an infinite sampling rate and bit depth. In terms of accurate reproduction - we're already there and have been for a long time, but in terms of what people 'prefer' to hear, we're not. Vinyl imparts its own character onto the sound that is not present on CD.
