Beastly challenge (Urgent help is needed)

Hello everyone,
I’m making some futile attempts to record acoustic guitar and everything is fine and clear during monitoring and yet once the audio is recorded I get something else – in fact, I get completely different sound; the levels are boosted, boomy and even slightly distorted. What possibly can be so wrong in digital world? When I press record I still hear what I’m supposed to hear but during playback it all sounds wrong. I tried mono, stereo, different cabling, different software (Samplitude 11, Reaper and Sonar) and I run it all on Win 7 64bit. My chain is as following: AT4060 mic to Great River preamp to HEDD and then AES into Lynx TWO. As I said it all sounds fine during monitoring and recording but the playback of recorded tracks sounds completely different. Is it possible that my sound card is basted? But then why it is all fine during monitoring and not playback? Did anyone ever experience similar problem? Where should I look for solutions?
I’m very shocked and embarrassed here and have a deadline for this project so all iall feeling very stressed and cornered.

Could it be some interference from Windows 7?
Could it be that my Lynx TWO is finished?

At this point I’m out of ideas.
Please through any thoughts, ideas and possible solutions at me
Thank you for listening
