Cheap home theater system

Here's the situation: I'm looking to buy a home theater system. The problem is that my budget is tight. So now I’m choosing between Yamaha YHT (5 Best Home Theater Systems Under $500 (Netflix and Chill on a Budget)) and Energy basic system (first here: 4 Best Home Theater Systems under $500 (Sept. 2018) – Ultimate Guide), also some reviews recommended Logitech Z906 (The 10 Best Surround Sound Speakers to Buy in 2018).
The problem is that I've never tried one of these before, so I'm asking for advice. Which one would you choose and why?

About installation - I’m planning to hang speakers on the wall.

Yep, I know that’s personal, and I’m afraid it’s not possible to find a home theater system with a good performance within 400$, but I’d like to try. So if you have any recommendations, I’d be really grateful!
Thanks in advance!

p.s. – no, it’s not connected to RMorgan post, we don't even know each other

Yeah I mean you can get a really good home theater for $400.

I know you already checked out some reviews, but here is one specifically for home theaters under $1,000: https://www.officialtop5review.com/h...ms-under-1000/

This is where I got mine from, and their #1 recommendation is only $350.

There's a couple on the list more expensive, but that's the one I went with and it works great for me.

Hopefully you found what you're looking for.

If you're going to get something in that price range I'd say don't sweat the details too much. If you've found something that's been reviewed and has a positive response, go for it! Enjoy it for the next 5 years while you save up for something better.

Even if you save up for individual pieces and swap stuff out as you go, you can have something to enjoy while you work on piecing together your 'forever' system.
