KEF and Savoir want to help you sleep better with their $115K speaker bed

The Savoir KEF Seventy-Five luxury speaker bed.

Britain’s KEF makes some of the world’s best loudspeakers, just as Britain’s Savoir makes some of the world’s best bespoke beds. In an unlikely partnership, the two companies recently joined forces in the spirit of fostering better sleep. To that end, they announced the launch of the Seventy-Five, a custom-crafted luxury bed loaded with some of KEF’s high-end speakers. Its $115,000 price tag, however, might just keep you up at night.

You may not have heard of Savoir, but its handmade beds are considered by many to be the best in the world. Its storied history dates back to 1905, when London’s famous Savoy Hotel started putting them in their rooms. Since then, Savoir beds have helped the likes of Sir Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, Katherine Hepburn, and Frank Sinatra doze off. These days, the company makes less than 1,000 of them a year.

So why outfit one of its famous sacks with $18,000 worth of KEF speakers? The Seventy-Five, “named for the ideal number of beats per minute in a song to aid relaxation,” a press release says, is Savoir and KEF’s contribution to better health and well-being. It’s aimed at helping lucky Seventy-Five owners destress and sleep better.

“Music has the potential to transport us, which is exactly what we need in order to fall asleep,” says Savoir’s specialist sleep scientist, Dr. Rebecca Robins, who is a sleep researcher and instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “In our go-go busy lives, it is easy for the day to fly by filled with work tasks, then bedtime rolls around and many of us can struggle because we have not built in time to relax, unplug, and unwind. Music is one terrific way to separate from your busy day, transport yourself, and prepare the mind and body for sleep.”

If you have (starting at) $115,000 to spare, the Seventy-Five is built around Savoir’s iconic No.2 bed that’s handmade in London and features a soft topper that is “filled with millions of natural micro springs courtesy of swaths of horse tail hair, teased and laid by hand. It takes more than 150 hours to craft.

Embedded in the headboard’s fancy Kvadrat/Raf Simons fabric are two KEF Ci3160REFM-THX reference architectural speakers that retail for $8,000 each, and six of KEF’s $400 Kube 8b subwoofers that are hidden in the base of the bed. Side tables mounted in the headboard are made of dark American walnut and feature wireless charging ports, a special detail Churchill undoubtedly loved.

The Seventy-Five’s pricing starts at $115,093 (excluding installation). If you happen to be in London, you can go have a lie down at the Savoir Showroom on Greene Street, where the Seventy-Five bed will be displayed.

This 85-inch Samsung 8K TV has an incredible $3,000 price cut this week
The Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV in a living room.

One of the best upgrades you can make to a home theater system is grabbing yourself a large and high-end TV, and for that, you may want to consider this massive 85-inch Samsung QN900C. Not only is it one of the best TVs on the market, but it even runs at an 8K resolution, so even if you have it up close, you won't notice the pixel density. Of course, it is an expensive piece of kit, and it usually goes for an eye-watering $8,000, although you can get it from Samsung directly for $5,000, which is a whopping $3,000 discount and probably one of your few chances to grab such a high-end TV for a lower price.

Why you should buy the 85-inch Samsung Neo QLED 8K QN900C
Like some of the other best QLED TVs, the Samsung QN900C is packed with a lot of excellent features, starting with the Neural Quantum Processor 8K, which can upscale your content up to 8K resolution. That's absolutely needed given that there essentially isn't any 8K content available on the market right now, so having an upscaler like this means it's compatible with your current and even older content, although the results will vary depending on the source material. It also comes with Neo Quantum HDR 8K, which is just Samsung's own high-end proprietary HDR, but at least it also supports HDR10+, so you can access pretty much all HDR content.

Our favorite headphones, Sony WH-1000XM5, are $70 off today

With how loud and crowded the world has gotten, having a solid pair of headphones to keep all the noise out can be really helpful. When it comes to active noise cancellation (ANC), our pick for the best headphones on the market is the Sony WH-1000XM5, which easily competes with the likes of the AirPods Max. That said, the XM5s can get really expensive, which is why we're happy to see this deal on Amazon that brings the price down to $329 from its original $400 price, saving you a solid $71, which may not seem like much, but it's a great amount for one of the best headphones you can grab.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM5
There is a lot to love about the Sony WH-1000XM5, and the excellent audio fidelity is one of them. Ironically enough, it has smaller drivers than the previous generation, and yet it still manages to upgrade the audio quality with a balanced overall sound and a surprisingly great bass response that makes it thumpy but doesn't muddy the sound. Realistically, you can pretty much listen to any genre of music you want on the XM5s, although it does slightly favor those who prefer a more neutral sound rather than something a bit more bass-heavy.

Staring deep into the anti-glare abyss of the Samsung S95D
Samsung S95D Anti-Glare

From the moment the Samsung S95D OLED made its first appearance at CES 2024, I’ve called its anti-glare, anti-reflection technology a game-changer for OLED TVs. But the moment those words left my mouth, concern that this technology might somehow degrade the picture quality started up.

Since then, I’ve seen the S95D in a couple of other settings, but I’ve always said I would reserve my final opinion until I properly review the TV. And I'm prepared to be proven wrong.
