For me the quality is similar to Acrobat 9, i.e. completely not
acceptable: spaces between words are often missing.

This is inherent in the way TeX was written.
But there are ways to tackle the issue.

You should use the  pdfx  package and prepare for  PDF/A-2b or -2u.
This fixes many of these things that affect conversions, as well as Accessibility and Archivability.

It's not fully tagged PDF, but handles many other technical issues.

Best regards
