Wave export problem

Hi! Recently I have recorded a song and wanted to export it to 24 bit wave file. At first Windows Media Player couldn't play it :/ So I have installed Media Player Classic and it works, but now there's another problem. Sound of this file is distorted in some way. Only exported files has this distortion problem, when I am listening to original track in DAW, everything is ok. I put a sample (sample is in mp3, but the original file is in wave). Does anyone knows what is it about and how to fix that?

most basic audio cards on computers operate at 16 bit. There are some players that will convert the 24 bit, like audacity.
Standard CD music files are 44.1KHZ at 16 bits. So, normally, a 24bit WAV file would be converted to 16 for MP3's and CD.

Ok, thank you for your reply! I'll convert it to 16bit

what happens when you (import&) play the rendered file in the DAW ?
That would tell you whether it’s the windows media player or the file itself, anyways.
I would suspect the render is clipped if it sounds bad in the DAW, also.

When I import and play this 24 bit file it's sounds distorted anyways. I think I have found solution :D. I have deleted reverb which was coming from aux track and replaced it with another one and now it works...
