I'm no expert, but knowing that -filter_complex is very flexible, and
quickly checking the docs, this is what I easily came up with:

ffmpeg -i inputstream -filter_complex 'asplit [a][b]; [a]volumedetect; [b]ebur128' -f null -y null

and it seems to do the trick.

Feel free to comment if there's a better way. :-)
