This came up in a discussion about the industry over a few beers after work this afternoon. Thoughts?

“the InBev of” over “a few beers”?

There is an auto dealer in my area that has a dealership with about every automobile manufacture with his name on it

Don’t make him any better than any other dealers

All the auto dealers are selling complete "systems" not a box of parts to build a car.

Imagine not being able to buy a complete car and having to design it and source parts for it (like you do with an AV system). Would you prefer going to one place to get everything or would you be okay with getting tires from one place and seat belts from another?

Mac,
I'm sure someone can come up with the product in your scenario that would metaphorically be like SNAP not carrying URC. URC products, even entire URC systems, are just parts of the systems we create.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

To the OPs question, I would say Legrand is the InBev of AV. They both have a lot of big, complacent, watered-down lines.

I think Snap is a little more innovative, buying and designing far more skus.
