Issue with importing wav files

Hi guys,
I am trying to import some wav files into 6.5 that were recorded onto an Akai DPS24 and so far I have had mixed results. Initially after importing 10 wav files (1 song) I had a really weird “watery/chorus” type sound occurring. These wavs are 24bit 44.1 and the resultant sound was revolting basically.

Next attempt, I imported another batch into cubase and success! but I don’t recall changing any of the settings or selecting any different options prior to importing.

Third attempt, the same watery sound going on…

I am using a Toshiba Qosmio, Win 7 64bit, mbox 2. Have I supplied enough information?
