The display is too small to show only 3 songs at a time, so it's impossible to handle a large number of songs on a large SD card!
32GB+32GB is a safe bet.

This OS may top out at 20,000 song tracks. We'll need clarification from HiBy on any limitation on the number of songs. Still, using the folder browsing for files should be okay.

Spitting image of Cayin N3Pro, right down to user interface?
It is similar, but even narrower vertically.
I have used the Cayin N3Pro and the RS2 was not flattering to use.
The Cayin N3Pro shows 5 albums in the album list, while the RS2 shows 3.
I only touched it for a short time, but could not find the Home button.
Do you push in the volume wheel?

Gosh I don’t remember re home button and N3pro which I briefly owned once upon a time.
Three albums at a time?!? Ugh. Five at a glance was bad enough. Have to know what you want to hear I guess, because browsing will be unpleasant

This is a small device, barely larger than the R3 Pro. I'm expecting a similar UX. I'm also curious about the home button.

Looks almost ideal spec wise (would have liked longer battery time), might be time to try a r2r dap. Preordered

One of my pet peeves with UI/UX design both at work and home - why do UI designers make their non-touch interfaces look like they expect you to use it with a fat thumb instead of a scroll wheel or other pointer? The screen on a Sandisk Sansa M230 showed three songs, because the display was the size of a postage stamp. This is a 480x360 2.45" display - it could show comfortably six tracks and probably more.
