€699 for the board, piece, and DIN cable, so new users will also have to purchase a ChessLink unit or King Element (that’s assuming you can find a KE unit available for purchase.)
I understand they need to keep the DIN connectivity, but this seems like a good opportunity to also work in a USB port.
Here’s a link with details and price:

Got the Millenium Supreme Tournament 55 yesterday... I am amazed by the build quality and it works extremely well.. Highly recommends!!!

But it doesn’t work with chess.com, correct ?

I haven't seen an update for the Millennium ChessLink app, so I'd say Chess.com is still not supported.

Truly disappointing that Chess House has just increased the introductory price by more than 20% !!!!  It is now $849.90 !!!! I was really looking forward to get this board frustrated.png

It's an amazing board.. Maybe they have sold out?

No,
Still no support for chess.com .. Lichess is fully supported though.

Has anyone received theirs yet? What do you think of it?

Yes mine arrived today. Quality of board excellent. Great colour consistency. Definitely comparable to DGT rosewood Bluetooth board (which I returned). Excellent build quality. Pieces very good, nice weight. I prefer them black to be honest but easily as good as the Ebony pieces I had from DGT if not better made. 

Connection to LiChess is simple and the software is very intuitive (unlike DGT which is clunky and dated). Love the LED move indicators. Very quick to respond.

Packaging excellent and Millenium have been great to deal with.

Highly recommend. Much better, in my opinion, than the top spec DGT board and pieces I returned.

Yes see post above!

Now available from chess.co.uk but seems very expensive at £995 just for the board and pieces.

looking at the pics above I’m not convinced about the white squares, are those black lines acceptable on a board of that cost ? 
at least the new module is now available with 2 engines built in.

Pics make very slight black lines way more noticeable in pic than real life. Remember this is real wood!

Ordering direct from Millenium the price they charge is €799 minus the import duty. So to buy direct (including your import charges which you pay to customs) and delivery is approx £700.

Definitely a better experience all round than DGT in my opinion.

Thanks, It’s an interesting proposition.

I just tried the Android Chess.com app on a Millenium Tournament 55 board..!! It's really great!! The only small gripe is that I have to click "continue on board" once game started but that's a minor thing.. Really nice and the Millenium board is superb.. I really enjoy playing over the board chess on chess.com.. A completely different experience than playing on the computer display!!
