CE Pro 100 Names Top HT Preamp Processor Brands
Integra is the No. 1 brand in the 2017 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis for HT preamp processors.

Robert Archer · May 30, 2017

CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.

In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.


Like the other audio categories, the HT Preamp Processor segment growth has upped competition, too.

In a tight cluster, Integra leads but is followed closely by Marantz, Anthem, Classé and McIntosh. Classé jumps into the top five brands, while Sony with 16 dealers and Rotel at 15 narrowly miss.
