Default Power supply cabling

Greetings everyone,
If my power supply is located two or so feet from the amplifier, should I use shielded cable for the bias voltage? The filament supply will be located in a separate cable assembly from the "DC" supplies and all cabling will be done with teflon coated wire.

Thanks,
Ray

No, just decouple it to ground near the valves.
