Why is it much more interesting to polychain a mopho with a tetra than to do same with another mopho?

I would think since a mopho dt has the same architecture as a mopho kb , to polychain those would be the logical impulse? How is it that a tetra is a better match?

I would think that the Tetra being polyphonic and multi-timbrel that would be why.  Four voices is okay, but I do think six is the magic number, hence why I'm quietly looking at a second Tetra.

Tetra and Mopho Keyboard have programmable feedback gain, whereas Mopho Desktop does not. So if you've got a Mopho Keyboard, a Tetra would be a slightly closer match, which can be important for poly-chain. Also, of course, four voices.
