Connecting Guitar/Bass to DBX286s with Active DI-Box

the DBX 286s manual says on the page 10 that: "Important: DO NOT anything other than a microphone to the MIC INPUT". Does it also mean guitar or bass thru active DI-Box which switches a signal to microphone level signal?

I thought it was pretty common practise to connect your instrument (guitar or bass) to mic preamps mic input with active DI-Box, when micpre dosen't have inbuilt DI or do I just have to use LINE INPUT, (which sounds pretty lame) if I wanna plug my guitar or bass straight to 286s?

All the comments are very welcome and appreciated, since I'm rookie working with hardware :smile:
