Audio on K5 movie mode.

Movie/video mode is not particularly important to me. I have my K5 for the fantastic stills it is capable of.
However, just occasionally I do wish to make a short video and up till now have used my wife`s Fuji bridge camera (F6500fd). It does a fairly good job, including auto-focus.
The K5 does not auto-focus in movie mode, I knew that before I bought it and I can live with that. What is really bugging me is not being able to hear the audio, it is so quiet as to be almost silent. I have turned up the volume using the rear e-dial with no effect.
Please can someone put me right, there has to be something I`m missing.
