There are several unique characteristics.
One is the frequency range is the audio frequency range. Another rating is impedance of source and load. The power is rated instead of voltages or currents.

To achieve high dynamic, an audio transformer needs a magnetic shield, typically a box made of a high permeability
material, e.g. "?-metal". If your device hasn't an effective shield, it can't be used in an enviroment of interfering AC magnetic
fields. The most severe problem are mains transformers, but I guess pulsating ground currents (...)

30 years and older audio equipment used them. A portable transistor radio/tape player from that age may have the driver and the output audio transformers. Bigger ones on tube audio equipment. But depending what you want to do with it, a plain power transformer can be used.

If the said radio shack transformer actually has 1:10 windings ratio (unfortunately I don't see a specification at Radio Shack) it most likely doesn't work in your application because of it's expectable high leak inductance. But you should try yourself. Simply consider an about 10 to 20 kHz cut off frequency for usual cheap audio transformer

It appears this is a power transformer. Therefore it is designed to operate at power line frequencies (50Hz or 60Hz). It will not behave like a broadband audio transformer, in case you were planning on using it that way. As for the 500 ma. current specification, that looks like it is a specification for the 12 VAC windi

There are all sorts of passive networks that can change one impedance into another. The audio transformer is one example. Pi and T LC networks can also change the phase angle.

You may not need the transformer. Does the direct connection give you the acoustic signal level you want? Otherwise you will need an audio transformer. Try Tandy/Radio Shack for a in person purchase. There are several US mail order stores like Digikey and Mouser if you live there.

The two wires of a telephone line are balanced so that each wire has the signal out-of-phase to cancel hum pickup.
Your circuit grounds one wire of the telephone line which causes the other wire to act like an antenna that picks up all kinds of interference.
Usually an audio transformer is used to keep the telephone line balanced and it also is

For matching in this situation you can use a small audio transformer.
Where the Turns Ratio of the transformer = SQRT (Load Resistance / Source Resistance)
in your situation we can consider: TR = SQRT(32/50) = 0.8
As an example, if the transformer primary winding have 100 turns, the secondary winding must have 100 x 0.8 = 80 (...)

Your circuit is really crude! This is not the good way to obtain a 1 MHz AM modulated signal.
You should feed 5 VDC to the crystal oscillator, and use a buffer amplifier in which you can apply the audio modulation.

Your safest bet is to use an audio oscillator set to a very low voltage to determine the turns ratio between different windings. This still will not tell you what frequency it works at and what mains voltage the primary is designed for. I would suggest that these last two uncertainties will cause a grave safety and fire issue which is more costly
