CE_Top_100Amber Technology's Integrated Solutions Group offers brands and products for custom installation projects in both the commercial and residential markets.

Recently the CE Pro Top 100 Brand Analysis for 2015 was announced in the US, with a number of brands distributed by Amber featuring on the list. The CE Pro Analysis measures the popularity of brands used by the top 100 integrators in the US domestic market.The brands on the list are closely watched because integrators look to the brands that are being used by the top 100 as a signal of success.

Sonance has secured the top spot yet again for Architectural Loudspeakers (in-wall and in-ceiling) and Outdoor Audio. Out of the CE Pro dealers surveyed 62% use Sonance’s outdoor audio, and 52% use Sonance’s architectural speakers.


In addition, the Sonance Soundbar made a strong showing, ranking just outside the top 6 in its debut on the list.

Overall Sonance continues to lead the custom installation market, and provide innovative solutions for our customers, both commercial and residential. 

Integra leads the market in A/V Receivers and is a dominant leader in A/V Processors (45%, with the nearest competitor at 21% share).

In Soundbars, our recently-appointed partner, Leon Speakers makes a strong impact at second place, almost sharing the lead with Sonos (Sonos 47%/ Leon 42%). NuVo takes an even share of the Wireless Audio market, after dominant player Sonos.

Audioquest remains strong in HDMI Cable, taking third position with 22% amongst approximately 40 manufacturers.

Middle Atlantic continues to dominate the Racks category, taking a clear first place at 89%.  In the Cooling Systems category our brands hold second and third places. Middle Atlantic was second, while Cool Components are increasing their market share and take third position in this category. 

The team at Amber Technology are proud to see Cool Components fill this position – Amber has represented Cool Components from its humble beginnings back in 2009.  It’s now very much a strong player in the industry both here and in the US.

Congratulations to all of our brand partners!
