Are reel to reel tape decks making a comeback?

In the early 2000’s people began returning to vinyl, realizing that CD was not as natural sounding as analog. Cassettes followed shortly thereafter.
In 2011, people began to show up at audio shows with reel to reel tape recorders that could compete or better the best turntables made. That was the beginning of a resurgence of interest and now reel to reel tape recorders have become the go to device for high-end audio enthusiasts.
