Have you looked at the PCB layout?
What is located where those black mysteries reside?
A pair of To126 transistors.
Does that give you a clue rather than reading.

You better look at the picture more carefully. Are the 2SC3423's that huge?

Now, I have to ask a stoopid question: what is the purpose of heatshrinking together a LED and a single transistor?

look at the datasheet. It tells you that 2sc3423 are To126.

I have partially populated PCBs, and you don't have to tell me that 2SC3423's are TO126. I'm using those that I bought in the 1990's.

It does look like four transistors in a hug with heatsink.

I did read it once few months back, but due to the noise posts like this, it's kinda difficult to trace back what you need

Just there to thermally couple the transistors and the diode. It's a refinement more than a necessity, as they are touching anyway. The thermal time constants are fairly large compared to music signals, so they just keep bias drift lower. You can use heatshrink tubing there, as the total dissipation is low.
