Other than that, I guess my experience is opposite of yours. I have relatively inexpensive digital playback gear (under $1000 per system) that does pretty well up against my considerably more expensive vinyl playback gear. And getting my turntable systems to sound their best is much more of a pain in the neck not to mention the record care rituals. So I find myself spinning CDs a lot. It saves wear and tear on those multi-thousand dollar cartridges...
Personally, I'd love to see great hi-res multi-channel recordings come out on Blu-Ray, but unfortunately, video seems to be the focus of that format (at least presently).
Sorry, but the public's standards are moving in the opposite direction.
Look at the quality of your average stereo in the 70's and 80's versus now - more and more people are using $100 iPod docks as their primary stereos, or computer speakers, or worse. People aren't willing to pay for quality and it isn't likely to happen.
If it ever does happen it'll be Apple that's able to pull it off, selling ALAC on the iTunes store.
But people aren't going to be willing to sacrifice the 1GB+ of space on their mp3 player that a losslessly compressed hi-res album would take up.
