worth insulating between heated floors?

hi all

i'm doing a complete gut and rehab on the second story of a 2 story home. i've pulled up the old subfloor, and found some faced insulation which is in in pretty tired shape, so i'm removing it.

is there any purpose to replacing it, given that it's going to be between 2 heated floors? is it worthwhile to install new batts, if only to have them function as a sound barrier? is it correct to assume if i do replace it, to use unfaced insulation?

thanks

I always recommend insulating between floors which acts as a sound barrier...especially if there is hardwood on the floors or a TV in the room. It is an inexpensive way to reduce the transfer of sound.
