Can you, or can someone you know, check for DC voltage on the speaker terminals when the amp is on, but not playing? Ideally, the meter should read 0mV with no signal, and certainly less than +/- 10mV. Anything over +/- 30mV is worth having checked out, especially if it changes as you turn the volume knob with no signal applied.

A better solution is like I have mine; use the Arcam 10 connected to the tweeters of your speakers & the power Amp connected to the woofers & link the pre out's on the 10 to the power Amp. using phono cables. The Manual can be downloaded from Arcams discontinued section of their website.
This Bi-Amp method gives a far superior sound than just using the 10 as a pre Amp.

When the fuses keep blowing suspect an overload in the power supply or on the Main Power Amp board. Chances are that a semiconductor has developed a short and is acting like it was just a piece of wire. The main suspects are power transistors. These can be tested with an Ohm Meter, even in circuit! For when the test probes are applied to each terminal, the meter will act just like you were touching the probes together.

I have the service manual of ARCAM AVR 200 with me. send me a mail on my mail id. I will send u the service manual. its a large file having a size of 4.8 mb. I can sent it through fixya.
Check the standby transformer T752 first. if its primary winding is short the this problem can occur.

Fuses blow like this due to an overload. The cause being a semi-conductor such as an IC or transistor acting like it was a piece of wire. The most common cause is a shorted output transistor(s) in the main amp. But the power supply can't be ruled out. If you have an ohmmeter then a shorted device will be easy to spot. As it will be just like you have touched the probes together when a part (even in circuit) is tested.
