    If it's minor and you can't hear it, I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

    Do you actually have a problem with it?

    you should, if only b/c you don't know what sort of speakers/PA you might be using in the future.

    A DC offset, even if undetectable to the ear, makes the max voltage value higher, and that can cause clipping if the speakers can't handle the shift in voltage. It's a rare thing to happen, but better safe than sorry.
