Control4 is the No. 1 brand in the 2017 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis for multiroom A/V distribution systems.

Robert Archer · June 4, 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.


The category is a reflection of some of the industry’s top go-to brands in Control4, Crestron, Savant, SnapAV and Sonos.

This is one of the larger categories in terms of the overall companies represented, and it includes a nice mix of wireless with Bluesound and HEOS, with traditional products from ADA, Extron, Niles and SpeakerCraft.

I really think you should consider separating Audio Distribution from Video Distribution, in these reports.  I suspect many dealers frequently use completely different systems for distributing Audio than they do for Distributing video and they should be allowed to vote on them separately.
