Of course to the hobbyist the answer is "Because they are there!" and you better get them working. I would be better off with a DELQA, BTW will the cabinet kit from a DEQNA work with the DELQA?

I found a cabinet kit that appears to be for the BA123 and on the plate
with the AUI connector it is labeled 'DEQNA'. I became suspicious that
DEC would sell the same hardware, but with the label 'DELQA', and charge
you more, of course. I think that I got this one because when a DEQNA
was upgraded to a DELQA that cabinet kit was 'upgraded' also. Ha.
