Kind of hard to believe that this is even an issue. There are a few no holds barred vinyl productions, many of Japanese origin, where they went to extraordinary lengths to secure an optimum result - but even with those records you were more steps away from the original source than you can be (note "can be") with tape. And a well calibrated tape rig registers a greater frequency range than what is possible with even no holds barred vinyl (given that the microphones are sensitive to the limit of the tape).
I'm trying to remember which famous mastering engineer, British, it was who not that long ago stated he couldn't understand why anyone would want to go back to vinyl, given the struggles they had getting things approximately right. And I really enjoy vinyl, but I have both tape and vinyl.
An element worth considering, and I write as someone in my mid-50s, is the fact that our hearing down-calibrates with age, when it comes to the higher end of the frequency range, and that this may create a semblance of parity between the two formats if one goes by hearing alone. Which is good, if you ask me. You get to enjoy both.
