im using my portable amp Glacier,i liked it so much that i decided to open it up to see things by my own eyes........somehow ,under the board,i saw something look like metal-sponge stick to the board as designed.........i believe it is the amp's mass,i asked myself does it really need it (designer intend to put it there for sure).

Mass?  So the Glacier has some sort of gravity control device?

 

Seriously, you better leave it there.  Foam under a PCB is often used a dual-purpose material: 1) to insulate the solder and pins sticking out of the bottom of the PCB from shorting against the case, and 2) to provide a bit of cushion if it's portable to keep parts from shaking loose.  Between 1 and 2, #1 is critically important.
