If ADB equipment are used with older NeXT systems they won't work properly. Here are the ADB requirements:
-A Turbo computer.
-CPU eprom version 74.
-New revision computer to soundbox/monitor cable.

The part number is molded at both ends of the connector:

        NeXTstation             4535            1532
        NeXTstation color       4536            2286

New revision monitor which uses a vertical scan rate of 72hz instead of 68hz, except on NeXTdimension systems color monitor stays 68hz.
