An MP3 can often be more than 192kb/sec.
"CD quality" MP3's are 320kb/sec.
A real CD is actually about 1411kb/sec!
Your argument for vinyl is pretty weak. The mastering process will almost certainly be digital, so your "continual wave" will be a bastardised version of whatever the mastering process put out.
You also fail to mention the degradation suffered by vinyl each and every time you play it.
There's a lot more that can go wrong with vinyl to cause sound problems than with a decent CD player.
However, as an interface for mixing music, vinyl won't be beaten.
Thankfully, we now have tools like Serato which really are the best of both worlds...
