Can someone recommend a good audio analyzer? No need to be high-end. Preferably cheap:) I have been using Audio Precision. But my boss wasn't happy when I recommended that because it is too expensive.

THanks in advance.

if you just need a spectrum analyzer, "spectrum lab" is freeware, and ive been very happy with it.  it can take in external audio from a soundcard, or work on saved wav files.

Thank you for your answer. May I ask if spectrum lab can be used to measure audio SNR? Or even better, harmonics and intermodulation distortion? I went to the website but could not find an answer.

it has markers that you can move along the trace to get values, and i estimate SNR and distortion from these, but you can also save the data and then do the real number crunching on it.  i also have a good sine generator that i use in conjunction with it to do intermodulation distortion and the like.  you can probably generate a decent sinewave with your soundcard as well.  its definitely not a complete plug and play solution, but it is free.
