Wiring outlet box

A (hopefully) quick question:

I own an old house with original plaster walls, and want a dedicated outlet installed in my music room. I'm told the most efficient way to do this is to run romex through the floor, into an aluminum outlet box (on which I'll be placing my Oyaide WPC-Z plate) screwed into the floor. The electrician doesn't think that the outlet box itself needs to be grounded. So here's my question: is he right? Is there any advantage to grounding the outlet's aluminum box, or is it okay for audio purposes to leave it ungrounded? Thanks in advance,
