I think not. I got a DB 750 in a trade last week and I've been running it through my 2 Epi series 1 UL112 cabs, and the Aguilar seems to be a better match with the cabs than the Epi was. Who starts these kind of rumors? Here's a clip. Lineage: Bass -> DB 750 -> Epi S1 UL-112 mic'd Sound quality of the recording isn't that great, but that's with the EQ's on the amp and bass set flat.
