Default X2 cap for Simple Single Ended

So I'm finally getting ready to build my amp and I have a question. I am not using the circuit board -- though at this point I would have been finished months ago had I gone that route. Anyway, since I am using a turret board, I do have a bit of extra flexibility.

Should I use an X2 cap and resistor between the signal and power supply grounds and the chassis? I see Bruce did this on the OddBlock design and that in his design and construction tips he recommends it.

I am not aiming for an ultimate build, but the inclusion of these two parts would be cheap and painless.

Thanks for comments,

I have a resistor-cap filter from earth ground to chassis/star ground on my amp with no problems.
