I have a Behringer DI Ultra G100 that I just bought and was thinking about returning and getting a V-Amp Pro instead. But before I do I have a few questions that I'd like to have answered.

1) Does the V-Amp Pro (rack edition) need a DI box when recording direct?
No....you can run it right into a sound card, use the XLR outs to a preamp or soundcard that has them, or run digital SPDIF outputs.

2) Can I connect another preamp to the V-Amp Pro just to use the cabinet simulator of the V-Amp? I like some of the sounds I'm getting on my old Digitech unit but I need a good cabinet simulator when recording direct. That's actual why I bought the Behringer DI box. But if the V-Amp can do everything the Behringer DI Ultra G100 can then I'd like to upgrade to the V-Amp.
Yes but I'll bet you will not want to after you try it.

3) Can the V-Amp Pro sound anything like a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Head? I know it's not ever going to sound exactly alike, but I would like something close to it.
It has that head on it.....as you stated it will not sound exactly like it.

Overall the V-amp Pro is the best $140 you will ever spend. It does not have as many options as a PODXT, but you can get a lot of really great sounds out of it. I loved mine, but sold it to Sucka when I needed some cash to buy a Vetta. He loves it also....I think.....but what he does with it in the middle of the night is none of my business.:toothless

You can only use the SPDIF digital out if your sound card has that input...and most do not unless you paid a lot of $$ for it. Otherwise you simply take the stereo headphone jack output from teh V-amp and run it to the soundcard's line in which is also stereo and you are set for both channels. All it takes is a trip to radio Shack for some adaptors.
