Sure. I'm a MM dealer, and this is what I use:

P18RS POWER TRANSFORMER
FBFVO-40-M OUTPUT TRANSFORMER

Their 18W PT can also do 36W, which is odd to me, but it works. This amp has them in it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0p04n1pSio

Just an FYI, their 40W OT listed above is physically smaller than what I'm used to, but sounds great.

Thanks,
Josh
