No; not in general.
The more expensive Parasound gear is very good (and very expensive); the A21 sounds very good IMO; the A23 does not (for example). I tried the A23 at home for a week and sent it back; I thought it sucked.
Rotel makes some very good components, and at comparable price points would probably give you more satisfaction based on my experience.
Every price range has some winners and losers, and there are also good integrated amplifiers from Creek and Musical Fidelity that are great-sounding for the money in the under-$2000 range.
Tell us what price range you want to compare within, and it will be easier to be specific.
