Not quite sure as I'm still getting familiar with the phone itself. I
would say yes because I did not change any of those settings except to
specify priority for codecs and to populate Line 1 variables.

No, the line goes directly from the phone company terminated jack to the
the Asterisk box. I also tried wedging a line filter between the
Asterisk box and the jack, but no effect.

It's located on a shelf in my office. The only other electronics that
are close to it is the UPS for it, about 2 feet away.
I' tried playing with the rxgain and txgain again and it sounds like its
minimalized, but I can still hear it some although it is very low. It
is lowest when the call is bridged. Highest after dial, but before bridged.
