Does Shunyata Hydra sound best with just one unit

I'm curious if the Shunyata Hydra power conditioners sound better with just one component plugged into them? When I plug more than one component into my PS Audio Ultimate Outlets and PS Audio UPC 200's the sound becomes more congested, there's less resolution and the fatigue factor increases. Sadly, I suspect it's universal that power cords function better when they're not being hogged by two or more components. Here I am with all this PS Audio conditioning equipment and I'm only using one outlet in each of them. Is it possible there's a conditioner on the market which will allow me to use several of my components without compromising sound?

I have the original Hydra that doesn't have current/power limitation (except for the fuse). Does anyone also own this unit and which units are you plugging in to? Thank you.

I have the following experience with the Original Hydra. When I plug the power amplifier into the Hydra there is a very black and silent background. Music seems to emanate from this dead silent background, which gives a weird experience. I don't like it, it's weird. So I plug the power amplifier directly into the AC wall outlet. Then I get a more "natural" sound with some of the noise, some of the grunge you also can hear in real life.
