'Fox and Hound', aka toner and probe, won't help much to follow cables along walls, from room to room. Toner and probe may help you find the end of a buried cable - will tell you approximately where it is behind the drywall. I guess the set could help you determine the direction a cable is taking, behind a wall, but pulling the plate should help with that too.
You should look for cable ends, where they should be located; they're usually in typical locations.
All of your audio cables should end up in one 'home run' location - basement mechanical room, family room cabinet, closet. Look for a blank plate. I guess the home run location could be buried behind drywall - toner and probe may help for that.
I'd poke around the attic, for the ends of those category cables, if they're not in the audio home run location.
