You could go either way, but you should do something. And not one of those cheap power strip thingies. They usually only last for a hit or two, and seldom tell you when they've been hit. So after that your system is wide open to surges.

Better to get a line conditioning unit. I have one similar to this:

I know Monster is overpriced in general, and the quality is no better, but this particular item (based on my research at the time) they did right. It's the only Monster product I have purchased in 20 years (when I learned they were no better).
