CD or Streaming... am I missing out?

I listen to CD in my headphone office system. Use a Theta Compli transport and a very nice and pricey tube 16/44 DAC. Have thought about a streaming capability and all its benefits but am both limited by SPDF and by 16/44 only. I also love the analog sound of my tube DAC. Does streaming sound far surpass CD? Am I missing out?

If this thread was entitled, "DVD or Video streaming" is there a chance that anyone who recognized the higher quality picture of DVD (assume that’s true for the sake of this example) would forego streaming?

It seems obvious that virtually no one would give up the chance for new shows, movies, documentaries, right? No one would simply start purchasing all the content available on streaming video for their collection -- right?

The question becomes, what is it about audio content that is different? Why would someone just give up the variety and novelty of streaming content to listen mostly or exclusively to cds? Serious question.
