I've been wanting a Naomoto GF iron for a while, and am ready to ask Santa for one. I'm really confused about the model numbers though; is there a difference between Naomoto HYS-58 and HYS-520? I don't see a single spec on any web site that shows a difference, but I find the 520 costs more.
This might be a hard question to answer, but if the collective wisdom of Pattern Review doesn't know, I'll find the phone number for the manufacturer and call them. I tried that once before, and and encountered language issues, so folks, I hope you know the answer!

I just went to the Naomoto site. Under steam generator irons it shows "HYS520/HYS58 so it looks like they're the same. I've had the HYS 58 for seven or eight years. It replaced a very old Sussman. I've been more than pleased with it. It really makes a big difference in my finished garments. I got mine at Cleaners Supply. At that time they had the best price. Where are you planning to get yours?

From what I can see it is the temperature control that is different. The 520 has electronic temp control while the 58 has what they are calling a liquid sensor thermostat.
