ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO Blu-ray Writer

Cinematic Visual & Audiophile Sound

Ever tried to watch a Blu-ray movie on your PC or notebook only to be disappointed by poor audio and lacklustre visuals then the ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO is the perfect solution for you.
ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO is the world's first Blu-ray writer with a built-in sound card that provides 7.1-channel audio output and functions as a 600 ohm headphone amplifier.


True 7.1-Channel Audio:
Regular notebooks only support 2-channel stereo sound, but ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO functions as an external sound card with true 7.1-channel output to bring incredibly immersive entertainment experiences to your PC in one easy step.

Virtual Surround Sound:
A dedicated digital signal processor (DSP) enables ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO to deliver a full surround sound experience using only stereo speakers or headphones.

600 ohm Headphone Amplifier:
ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO has a built-in 600 ohm headphone amplifier that reveals an incredible level of detail in music and movies, and enhances high and low frequencies for rich, dynamic sound that far surpasses audio from a notebook alone.

114 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio:
Enjoy up to 16X clearer audio than average onboard audio solutions for a truly premium PC listening experience.


Blu-ray Entertainment:
Play Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD titles as well as media files on Blu-ray or DVD.

Blu-ray 3D + 7.1 Surround:
Enjoy truly immersive entertainment at home with Full HD and 3D Blu-ray video playback and true 7.1-channel surround sound.

2D to 3D Conversion:
Upgrade your DVD video experience with one-click 2D to 3D conversion and HD upscaling.

Mobile Devices Remote Control:
Download PowerDVD Remote FREE from Google Play or the App Store and control video playback with your smartphone or tablet.

Silent Playback:
Four specially designed dampers at the corners of the optical disc drive mount reduce vibration and noise by up to 8dB*. Even at maximum speed, the drive's noise level is only 36.3dB(A)* — approximately the same noise level as a library. ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO even lowers the speed of the drive when playing commercial music CDs or DVD/Blu-ray movies to further decrease noise.

ASUS Impresario SBW-S1 PRO includes a built-in 6X Blu-ray/DVD writer for fast and easy data backups. BDXL support lets you write huge amounts of data on a single Blu-ray Disc Recordable (BD-R) ─ up to 100 GB on BD-R TL and 128 GB on BD-R QL.
