CE Pro 100 Top Brands: Whole-House Audio and Video
CE Pro looks at the top whole-house audio and whole-house video manufacturers in this 2016 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis. Control4, Crestron, Savant and Sonos take the lead in this brand new category.
The CE Pro 100 is a list of the highest revenue custom installation companies compiled each year (check out the list here). Integrators that made the list gave us an inside scoop on what manufacturers and brands they turn to again and again.
In this CE Pro 100 brand analysis series, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in nearly 50 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.
2016 marks the first year in which the Brand Analysis has consolidated the Whole-House Audio and Whole-House Video categories into Whole-House A/V.
The list below unsurprisingly reflects similar results in the previous whole-house categories where the carryover from home control and automation impacts A/V. The brands in this category overall pull equally from the audio, control and video markets. View the full report.
