We formalize, at the level of D-modules, the notion that A-hypergeometric systems are equivariant versions of the classical hypergeometric equations. For this purpose, we construct a functor Π B on a suitable category of torus equivariant D-modules and show that it preserves key properties, such as holonomicity, regularity, and reducibility of monodromy representation. We also examine its effect on solutions, characteristic varieties, and singular loci. By applying Π B to suitable binomial D-modules, we shed new light on the D-module theoretic properties of systems of classical hypergeometric differential equations.
