There is no right and wrong... just good sound. If it sounds great then it is great.

I'm confused. Some of my best mixes from live sound have been using D.I. Now, I'm going to audition for this band that mics everything on the stage. Usually, I would use micing for the drummer and that would be mostly shotguns for the cymbals and the high hat, and some small mics for the drums.
The drummer had d.i.s' on his drums that sounded tremendous out in front. We tried micing on stage and the monitor mix was just so cacophonus; I could't get it very loud. Hence, the band got very loud on stage and pretty soon, everybody started getting angry about the loudness.
Am I wrong to like D.I. versus micing?
