Looking for a 'PAZ-style' Stereo image analyser...

I'm starting to get to the point where a spectrum analyser and stereo analyser are really vital tools. I have managed to find OK free spectrum analysers from Voxengo (SPAN) and Blue Cat Audio (FreqAnalyst) but none of the stereo analysers I have found, are as easy to understand as the PAZ readout. I have done a bit of searching on Google, but most of the related posts I've found are pretty old. Just to point out, I use Cubase, which does contain the multiscope, but I find it hard to read and am not sure of the accuracy...Does anyone have any good suggestions and/or tips?

THANKS IN ADVANCE

The reason I won't go with Waves PAZ is that I don't agree with their 'rental' approach to purchasing plugs.

Yeah that seems like a great bundle, especially at that price. Some people seem to think its difficult to read, ie hard to tell frequencies apart, how do u find it?

I think it has 3 different sizes for the ui, if that helps
I rarely use this kind of tools, just to check something

Yeah so I've tried Span and a couple others, none seem to have as clear representation of stereo image (antiphase regions etc) as paz....does anyone know any others I could try or links to tutorials on using any of the mentioned analysers? Sorry but I really want to get my head around these techniques!
