The ability to copy a million times is mostly irrelevant because we're talking about one transfer to the end user. Also, perfectly accessing the original waveform is conditional. It depends on if the original was recorded on magnetic tape and then converted etc.

Nope. A digitally recorded signal onto a hard drive for example actually would better represent the original waveform than a tape. The idea that digital sampling creates jagged or stairstep waveforms is false. It comes back perfectly smooth up to the nyquist frequency.
