using a creek obh-21se with a denon adh5000.
 
this is the Q ; why do i hear sound from both channels on my headphones when i unplug one of the RCA cables ? am i not correct in assuming i should just hear one ear? i thought it might be the amp or source causing it but after switching them out too i still have the same result. Even tried with a schiit magni. My iphone 5s delivers a better sound stage then this set up. kinda weird. I've heard of crossfeeding but didn't think that means flattening the entire image. Apologies for my spelling... And ta very much for any thoughts...

no its all stock. the part i dont get is that the amp delivers more bass and fuller sound than an iphone but the imaging is total snot.

In that case it might be your headphone cable, I had my D2k recabled and it wasn't terminated correctly, so there's a chance there is a malfunction in your headphone cable causing you to get Mono Sound out of your headphone, as opposed to Stero
 
if you can afford it, contact Brian at BTG, he might be able to take a look at your headphone, and if it needs a cable he can build a new one for around $50 or so

I was thinking in that direction too.. maybe its the source ( arcam cd92 ) its getting up there in age. The only reason im thinking its not the headphone at all is that it sounds awesome on a dragonfly USB dac. 
 
Thanks for the response.

If the headphone sounds fine on another source then it could be your amp or your dac 
 
thinking a little more about it all, it could be that your amp  is creating some kind of cross over in the channels within the amp it self
