Ah.. yes.. that would be pretty pricey to go to the next step up...

If you don't have one, I'd beg or borrow an oscilloscope and look at the 
voltage waveforms.  You can capacitively couple the scope with a twist of 
wire around the hot lead if you don't have a suitable isolation or HV 
probe... you're not interested in precise voltage measurements, just 
whether the waveform is significantly not like a sinewave.
