Stress / Fatigue Mat used under stand?

I'll be picking up the system I bought next weekend and I will be setting it up on a hardword floor.

Does anyone use a stress / fatigue mat to setup the cabinet on to protect the floor?

I was thinking of maybe getting a rubber mat to put down.

Is that overkill?

I know some people use furniture mover type feet under their stands to protect the floor, so it is possible. But, truth be told you're going to do more damage from water spills than you will having the stand sitting directly on the floor.
