Opinions wanted on cantilever alignment


I have a couple month old Lyra Kleos and being new to this level of cartridge I’m looking for opinions.
When I received it I aligned it with a microscope and a Mint LP protractor. While aligning the cantilever I noticed that it doesn’t come straight out of the hole in the body, it is on an angle off to the side.
Its been on my mind and I wanted to reach out to the forum before I called the dealer.
This cartridge was expensive and I want to get the most out of it.

Luckily, you are dealing with a company that has been around for awhile and that stands behind its products. I bought my Kleos new from a Lyra dealer, which turned out to be a very good thing as warranty service was required. 
The cantilever should not look like that. I had an exact same issue and it was corrected by Lyra after a trip to Japan. I noticed this misalignment after just a few minutes on my tonearm. My dealer was behind me 100% and the folks at Audioquest were also accommodating. The Kleos is a great cartridge, but this issue seems to occasionally be a factor.

@tomic601  I don't think the Kleos has a Lambda option...yet.
