No, its not required. You still get great performance with just plugging the active shielding into a power strip. Just make sure you get a power strip with the ground pins that run along the side so you can fit multiple MPC's.
Master Control NOT required...they come w/ their own MPC power supplies. Joeyboynj has got it right...nice powerstrip is all you need. BTW: REALLY nice cables....best I've heard from my PASS LABS' gear. And not stratoshere prices!!
