The house I'm renting has some 110v audio equipment that I'd like to use and the transformer that they have seems to be fried. I'm looking for a shop where I can buy a transformer at a reasonable price. If it's close to Subte Ministro Carranza that'd be a bonus, but I'm willing to travel.

I think many electric hardware stores have these items, walk a couple of streets in the center and I guess you find a couple. Otherwise the feria (market) might also have stands that sell that sort of stuff.

If all fails, here I have a link to MercadoLibre, the ebay of latin america, they have plenty of these items for sale in the capital: transformador 220v a 110v

Ikku is right, you can also go to big supermarkets like Disco, Coto ,Carrefour or Jumbo (look for the really big ones) and they will have it. Also there is a big Easy Store where you can definitely get it. – JordanBelf Jan 28 '13 at 1:15
