Default Help sourcing a power transformer.

Hello! I've started building THIS amplifier and I'm having some trouble sourcing good transformers for the build. I noticed Edcor has some good options for the output transformers but I just don't quite have the knowledge to know if any of their power transformers would be compatible with the board. The company that I bought the PCB from recommends THIS but I'd like to find something in the states if at all possible. Could anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks for the help!

Haha, thanks. I did notice that Edcor sold a huge variety of power transformers, I guess my problem is that I'm confused about what would be compatible. Nothing offered on Edcor's website matches the specs of the chinese toroid I posted, but is there some way I could substitute?

For example, is there any way that I could use this transformer by dropping the 330v down to 260v?

I realize these are probably some serious novice questions, but I'm new to all this so any pointers would be appreciated.
