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.
Sonos increases its lead to cement its position as the most used soundbar by the CE Pro 100. The rest of the top five also made sizeable gains among dealers using their respective products.
Klipsch fell out of the top five, while Bose almost doubled its dealer representation.
