You can do this by running 'pamon' (from the pulseaudio-utils package)
and assigning the stream you create to some sink.  I just did it both
by 'folding back' onto the same output device and by assigning to a
new device.  In both cases latency was not apparent -- when I folded
back it sounded just like I increased the gain of the input stream.
