15 BEST Home Theater and Multi-Room AV Products in 2017

Just Add Power, Vanco International, Stewart Filmscreen, Crestron Electronics and more bring in awards for home theater and multi-room AV in the CE Pro BEST Awards 2017.


Crestron Electronics, Stewart Filmscreen and Vanco International are familiar names in home theater and multi-room AV, but they're only three CE Pro BEST Awards 2017 winners. Players like Just Add Power — noted for their commercial presence — also earned an award in this category. 

“The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential AV integration industry,” says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief, CE Pro.

“Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the CE Pro BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology.”

This year's 179 entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by a dozen credible industry leaders, along with the editors of CE Pro.
