Welcome to the hodge podge of the barely readable 561's IF-AF board
schematic. I haven't looked at it in ten years but I
meticulously dissected it back then and modified the hell out of it. The
piece you might be missing is the bottom left of the schematic: U3A/B and
U4A/B comprise the 750Hz bandpass filter and yes, there's a fader that
mixes unfiltered audio with bandpass filtered audio at connector 6.
