Tape has a lower signal to noise ratio, poorer frequency response, lower dynamic range, is harder to seek, suffers from print-through and degrades quickly.

You just prefer lower quality music. :)

Neither, best sounding system I EVER heard was a turntable back in the early 80's, a friend had a expensive direct drive system and the turntable was in a separate room from the speakers mounted on a cushioned table to keep the needle from jumping off the record, with a high quality record that was a clean sweet sound.

Let me know if you'd like the title changed. Perhaps to read as follows?

CDs vs Tapes vs MP3s vs Vinyl (or vs Records, whichever you prefer). :)

no worries.

fwiw, one of the best recordings I've ever heard was Yes from about 77 or so; heard it on a beautiful phonograph. That was when stereos were furniture, dangit. :)

I guess from a technical standpoint, the newest should be the "bestest" but I have some albums that sounded mighty good to me and probably still would sans the scratches. :D
