Why no interest in reel to reel if you're looking for the ultimate sound?

Wondering why more people aren't into reel to reel if they're looking for the ultimate analog experience? I know title selection is limited and tapes are really expensive, but there are more good tapes available now than ever before.
People refer to a recording as having "master tape quality",  well you can actually hear that master tape sound through your own system and the point of entry to reel to reel is so much more affordable than getting into vinyl.  Thoughts?

Get a listen to  Bill Evans: Waltz for Debby or any other of the great titles
and you will wean yourself off of vinyl. Here are the better sounding ones.
A fellow audiophile wanted a few of us to join him in his R2R quest.

He had 2nd and 3rd gen tapews from some noteworthy recordings’

They sounded very nice but I ‘m not sure if they would be more resolving than my analog rig

He want us to split the cost of tapes he already owned and duplicate copies down a level and have us pay equal for those

I already have stellar copies, I don’t need a new toy, opportunity for it to break and very expensive and limited catalog.

If I was a well know professional acoustic musician - compose demo or release quality stuff -  I would be all over it
Vinyl  /   High Quality Analog Tape  / High-Res digital

Which of these sounds least like the other two?

Vinyl.  High-Res digital and high quality analog tape sound similar. Vinyl does not sound like analog tape.
