What radio trigger with A700?

I'm looking to be able to use my A700 in tethered mode with studio flash. I've found that tethering prevents me from firing a flash unit via the PC socket, so I'm looking for a radio trigger setup that works with the A700.

I've got the Sony hot shoe adapter (which I'll need for any of them) and I've borrowed a Microsync transmitter and receiver. Problem: When mounted on the A700, no flash. Everything seems to be working, but the A700 just isn't firing the flash. It fires a shoe-mounted flash just fine, and shorting the pins on the hot shoe adapter fires the radio trigger, so I think everything is working. My suspicion is a voltage issue of some sort.

So the question I have is what brand folks are using with their A700s? Pocket Wizard? Microsync (arguing a problem with my camera body, though I don't know what it would be)? Other system?

Thanks!
