Default Best place to buy transformers in Toronto?

Hi forum
I was happy to buy from Plitron but hey it turns out that I would have to buy three of the transformers that I want just to meet there minimum. Also they have no distributer. Oh well that rules them out.
So that leads me to the question. Where can I buy a good quality transformer for audio in Toronto. I do not want to order from the states if I can at all avoid it. Any tips?

How about Hammond? Most electronic parts distributors should have access to those if they don't already have them on the shelf. (Electrosonic, for example. Except, probably, as in Vancouver, they're now located in some distant industrial suburb, so you can't just drop by during lunch to pick up parts from counter sales or "cash call".)

They haven't had parts there for 10 years. Just a couple of desks with a dude and a secretary ready to take your order... 2-3 weeks 'till get it
