Old Sony home cinema system poor audio quality

    I got hold of a Sony DAV-DZ860W system second hand; I believe it's quite a high end system so was looking forward to trying it out.

    Connected all the speakers and the optical input from the TV - it's working but no matter how much I tweak the settings the sound is really poor - minimal bass and there is output from the corner speakers but so low it's barely audible.

    Does anyone know if that's par for the course or are there any extra settings I should be looking at? I've tried all the default sound modes and none seem to make much difference. Tweaked the levels for the speakers using the OSD which helped a little bit but still not very impressive. Haven't run a calibration as I don't have a calibration mic, does anyone know if that's necessary?
