No. that is a misconception. A DI = inst level -> mic level. The reverse of the is mic level -> instrument level. But that's not what you're doing when you reamp. It's Line level -> instrument level. See? Different. Yes, a DI can work for this application, but that's not what it was designed for and it is not an optimum solution.
