I have real stone on the bottom quarter of my room along with hard floors. Abrsorptive rugs and furniture are a must in that setting.

nb67,

Yes, generally absorbers at first reflection points are a good thing. Your absorbers may be acting like an EQ, however. If you've absorbed all your highs but not affected the reverb time of your mids and lows then I could totally see how that would sound dead. What kind of absorbers are you using, where did you place them, and how big are they? And how big is your room?

Airbornesfc,

As long as the fake stone is below ear level, I don't think you'll have a problem. It would behave like a mass loaded bare wall, I think. Maybe with a little diffusion at high frequencies too.
