Released for use with the Commodore Amiga 500 / A500, the Amiga 520A MOD was basically a way to get around having to use a dedicated Amiga monitor and instead use your old, blurry TV.
The 520A MOD converted / Modulated the Amiga's native video output to a UHF RF signal which users could tune into a space channel on most televisions. The A520 MOD also offered composite video out and an audio on port.
Unfortunately, all bar a few of the first released, the A520 provided horribly low quality images leading some to thing that this was a ploy to get people to buy the proper Amiga monitors.
I have however read that with the removal of a number of components and a little rewiring the A520 will output full bandwidth S-Video.
Basically a bulky, horrible looking little add-on that barely did what it was meant to and seems designed to to do less than promised.
