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.


Sony opens up a commanding advantage in the category, which now features a maturing Ultra HD product market.

After missing out in 2016, Oppo Digital, for instance, lands back into the top five with offerings like its UDP-203 Ultra HD disc player and new audiophile UDP-205 Ultra HD disc player.
