**1****linear phase versus minimum phase (EQ's)**

What exactly is the difference between "linear phase" and "minimum phase" when talking about EQ's?

Is there a preference for one over the other when dealing with specific tasks?

Sorry, for such a Noob question.......but for a General mastering EQ, I hear so many different EQ styles/brands recommended, and "linear phase" this...."linear phase" that....comes up alot when asking about a mastering EQ.

Yet plugins such as Flux Epure (which is NOT a linear phase EQ) gets such rave reviews for a mastering EQ.

So whats the deal? Whats the difference between "linear phase" and "minimal phase"?
