First, you'll probably want to use the following instead for ripping:

~/Music/%A/%d/%t - %a - %n.wav

Ripping produces files in WAV format.  Using .%x as the extension 
probably isn't what you want.

Also, check the options under Config, Misc; you'll probably want to 
select "Do not lowercase filenames" and "Do not change spaces to 
underscores".  This should produce what you want for ripped files.

As for the filename for the encoded file, you'll want to set "Encode 
file format" under Config, Encode, Encoder:

~/Music/%A/%d/%t - %a - %n.%x
