I think we all know the answer to that...

I did some research into this, and guess what I found... No iOS or Android app which I found could measure past 100dB because the built-in microphones are so limited (many had considerably lower limits). See for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kr.sira.sound&hl=en

 

So that would seem to confirm that your story is BS, as we all suspected.

Found the Ultima CD Mat: http://marigoaudio.com/ultima-signature-mat/

 

But wait, there's more on that site: Mystery Feet ($1,500 US a set) and Tuning Dots. Just stop what you are doing, pour yourself a cold one and read through the product descriptions.

 

You're Welcome :popcorn:

Marigo Audio has been around talking about tuning dots since I knew about em, in about 1993.

 

You'd put their dots on the corners of a CD player or whatever, and all of a sudden, magic.

 

Don't move your cables ever, either.  You'll break the molecular bond and have to start the burn in process all over again.

 

Serious.

It's amazing how far this thread got way off topic. Tuning dots, cd mats? How are they relevant to comparing 16-bit to 24-bit music?
