Have you considered picking up another A520 just to compare and test?
Ahh, makes sense. I guess if you could pass composite through the 520 would have higher quality composite.

If I could get a dirt cheap 520 I'd try one, but in the end I really want quality video, so don't want to spend $$ on something I won't use.

You can adapt a 25pin connector. Not perfect but it works.

Got my gotek today and everything seems to work nicely (mono video only still)

Gives me more confidence investing some $$$.

Currently looking at s-video converter circuits and boards.

If you're after an RGB to S-video converter, sometimes the Shinybow SB-3680 can be picked up (used) very cheaply on eBay.

So I ended up getting this:

Has composite, s-video and buffered VGA (only if the monitor will sync amiga freq).

Haven't tried s-video yet, but the composite works great. Much better quality than a 520 and as a bonus I now know that my RGA output it OK!

Got the last one he made apparently:
