Vinyl also has a lower fidelity, in that it introduces more 'noise' and 'distortion' to the audio. If I as a listener am looking for less noise or distortion, vinyl will not supply the 'rich' experience I'm hoping for.
Also note, if high audio range is what you're looking for. Vinyl only beats CD, there are several other recording formats that supply even higher audio ranges. They just aren't as popular. And with the onset of digital distribution some audio formats supply huge range with no need to change hardware.
And yet another thing, the highest possible audio range is determined by the master recording... if the master recording has CD-audio range... the vinyl will only have CD-audio range... you can't just pull sound out of the ether when writing to vinyl.
