Some of the best DACs do close the gap quite a bit toward the level of quality that vinyl provides. But the best vinyl is still better than the best digital. And I say that from the perspective of someone who doesn't have a vinyl setup.
Historically I'd say that 20 years ago, most digital sucked. I'm sorry, but it did. Over the last 20 years, there's been a massive uptick in quality, and that uptick has trickled down to all levels of digital, so that on average, digital is pretty darn good nowadays
But the "type" of sound that each DAC presents is pretty similar. Kind of like solid state amps - most of them are pretty good nowadays, but they tend to all sound more alike than different. Yes there are differences, but not as much as between an OTL tube amp and an SET tube amp.
The more interesting question (to me), is if you have 2 different sources and they sound quite different but both sound good, which one is correct? Or, is it that nowadays in the high end, basic quality is high enough that any differences we note come down more to preference instead of better/worse.
