Unless you have the original Heath drives/enclosure and want to run the
system in it's original state with those drives.

Not familier with the Heathkit soft-sector controller, but it might not handle
the 500kbps rate needed for 1.44mb - but you can run a 3.5" drive at
250kbps/720k (which should work with most any classic SD/DD system)
just fine.
