Choosing components for a car-amplifier - which way to go? Answered

I am lucky enough to have a few "hi-fi" amplifiers around my house. What I've noticed is that the better quality kit has far fewer components than the generic cheap Asia imports. Am I right in my assumption that fewer components of significantly higher spec is the way to go when building a car-amp for myself? Many thanks.

I wish I could choose all of you as a best answer

(hey, 'ibles bosses, why can't I? there's loads of times when additional answers build on a great answer - in line with the 'be nice' policy, what could be nicer than to have multiple best answers?)

but a coin-toss-flip has seandogue to get it - sorry iceng and frollard - i do appreciate your input. ;-)

I always believed, Asian electronics having a high parts count was the result of
cheep labor and very low component cost.

Cheap component cost means they run into more engineering problems that they have to solve with more parts :)
