Yes they are very close to the outputs. I marked them here in orange, the caps and the IC's I get full wet sound out of. I guess I will keep probing and doing as you suggest but this is for sure needle in haystack! Some parts of probing stop me dead in my tracks, others I keep getting audio as I go along. I will try what you suggested.... somewhere in here the problem lies... I am unsure what the two grey box film caps are connected to, I have only done audio probing thus far.
